CCPS ACT Scores Up

Despite not reaching the State average in ACT scores, Christian County Schools officials say they are pleased with the improvement from last year. Hopkinsville High School students averaged an 18.8 Composite ACT score. Christian County High students averaged an 18.5. The District registered an 18.4 Composite score, down a point a half from the State average of 19.9.

Overall the District improved in all four categories. CCHS Composite scores rose a full point from 17.3 in 2013 and saw significant increases in English, Reading, and Science. HHS scores were more consistent with last year but did see drops in English and Math.

Superintendent Mary Ann Gemmill commended the Class of 2014 and their teachers for the improvement saying, "I am very proud of the students' results and the work of their teachers. The overall improvement is an indication that our push toward meeting college readiness benchmarks during the senior year is working in many areas. Our students’ journey toward college and career readiness begins the day they enter our doors for the very first time and that is why we are committed to our vision of transforming the educational environment to ensure that all students are prepared for the responsibilities of 21st century global citizenship."
