|Private School Students More Likely To |
Be Ready for College
Students with diplomas from private schools are considerably more ready for college-level work than those with diplomas from other types of schools according to data from the ACT, which produces a standardized test for college admission of the same name. Average ACT scores of private school students well exceeded the national average and a comparison with public schools is shown in the chart below. These higher scores also tracked along every racial and ethnic subgroup. One factor that contributes to these higher scores is the number of students taking an advanced curriculum described as four or more years of English combined with three or more years of math, social studies, and natural science.
