The Council for American Private Education (CAPE) recently reported that average SAT scores for 2013 graduates from religious and independent schools significantly exceeded the SAT College and Career Readiness Benchmark, a combined score of 1550 on three SAT tests (critical reading, writing, and mathematics) that is associated with success in college.
For college-bound seniors in independent schools across the nation, the combined average SAT score was 1662 (112 points above the benchmark) while the average for religious school students was 1595 (45 points above the benchmark). Public school students scored 1474, which was 76 points shy of the standard.
Lakehill students had a combined average SAT score of 1782, which was 232 points above the benchmark, 120 points above the independent school average, and 348 points above the state average.
On the ACT, Lakehill students earned a composite score of 24, surpassing both the state and national averages. The average Texas composite score remained at a record high of 20.8, while the national average was 21.1.
"We are extremely proud of our students," said Lakehill Headmaster Roger Perry. "These outstanding scores reflect years of preparation, and they will open many doors for our students. This high level of success is possible only because our students, their families, and their teachers have provided years of ongoing dedication to academics."
