Staff Report

Thursday, October 15th, 2020

The 2020 American College Test (ACT) composite and subject results for the Muscogee County School District mark the highest set of scores for the District to date. The ACT is a college admissions test, administered by a non-profit organization, which measures English, Math, Reading, and Science to determine academic readiness for college.

“We are pleased with our students’ continued improvement, realizing all-time highs in three of the four assessed areas and the composite average, despite the recent challenges. Similar to the SAT, the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the number of test takers and our students’ ability to complete college preparatory coursework in the spring,” said Dr. David Lewis, Superintendent of Education.
