Stanford Achievement Analysis
These graphs compare the average test scores of all FCA students (grades K-8) over the past five years with students throughout the nation who have taken the Stanford Achievement Test. During that period of time, students nationally averaged in the 50th percentile, while the average score of FCA students has exceeded the 74th percentile.
ACT Test Analysis
All FCA students are required to take a college entrance exam (ACT or SAT) prior to graduation. This graph compares the average score for those students who have taken the ACT at FCA, in Colorado, and nationally. The first four columns represent the four subtests of the ACT test, and the final column reflects the composite score over the past five years.
Advanced Placement (AP) Test Comparisons
All FCA students enrolled in AP courses are required to take an AP exam (This is not the case nationally). Over the past five years (2004-2008), 76.5% of FCA students received a passing grade on the AP exam, thus earning college credit or course exemptions for their test score. Only 61% of Colorado students and 59% of National students taking the AP exam qualified for college credit or course exemptions.
