Following yesterday's post regarding our class ACT scores, it is appropriate to provide some additional insight as to how these scores predict college readiness. Afterall, the second most common reason that parents chose Cape Fear Christian Academy (second to a Christ-centered education) was due to a rigorous and academically challenging curriculum.
The figure below illustrates the percentage of ACT students at Cape Fear Christian Academy that are ready for college-level coursework as compared to the state of North Carolina average. Prior research of this data further concluded observations such as students that take a combination of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics obtain much higher ACT scores than those students that take less than three science courses.
These ongoing data collection and analysis processes have allowed each of our students to receive customized one-on-one counseling on the courses they need to take in order to reach their college goals. Customized one-on-one counseling means that each student takes the ideal courses based upon their plans after high school. An aspiring pre-med major may take significantly more wet science courses than an aspiring engineer who may focus more heavily on physics and math.
