2014 CSPA ACT Scores are Top in Livingston County
The CSA District seeks to prepare students for college, work and life. As a college preparatory school, CSPA has central to its mission preparing students to gain acceptance and be successful at exemplary four-year colleges.
Michigan has identified the national ACT (American College Testing) test, as the gold standard for measuring readiness for college. Every high school junior in Michigan is required to take the test. It is important that CSA and CSPA teach the right things in the right ways so that our students can get into the best schools. Scores aren’t everything. It is important that our students have character, know how to get along and work with others, and know how to think and speak well. However, test scores do help to get our students into college.
CSPA High School students that were tested last March achieved an average score of 24 on the ACT, a full point greater than our average score of 23 in 2014. For comparison, the state average in 2015 was 20.1. In 2014, the lowest average in Livingston County was 14.7 and the highest was our score of 23. Howell scored 20.2, Hartland 21.8 and Brighton 22.7.
