    Al Gore gave me access to these numbers.
    These were all on www.k12.niche.com

    I'm not sure how accurate they were or how they gathered their info, but figured since it was the only site that had most schools listed their findings would be consistent for comparison purposes.
    When I did the research a few years ago while debating where to send my children the numbers were slightly different.

    I hate when these ACT lists pop up. "Gee, my little Johnny goes to the 'best' school in the 9th District." Fact is, the two most academically challenging programs in the area are probably Cov Latin and the IB program at Holmes.

    I did and they are not accurate. Those are not the average ACT scores for those schools. And the link does not open. It says website not available so I cannot tell what or where this data is coming from.

    Link not working for me. However, I was able to find it.

    Problem I see is that it's a small sample. For example, CCH shows 41 students sampled.

    Quite frankly if you are using ACT scores as the only reason to send a kid to a certain school you are missing the boat. How about some public schools allowing kids to graduate with 21 college credit hours? That is a huge huge plus.

    Anyway getting way off topic. Beechwood could still be the one seed so I think any talk of who is playing whom in this district is a little pre mature.

    Having sent a couple kids to college, preparation for, and scoring on, the ACT should be a huge consideration if you have a choice of where to send your kid for HS. I can tell you that far more kids from NKY will go to a DI/D2 college on academic scholarships with a 30+ on their ACT than will go on their ability to play college sports.

    If your goal as a parent is to get your kid to college, and minimize the amt of money it is going to cost you, then striving for a school that helps deliver higher ACT scores for kids should definitely be the factor in your decision.

    Colleges don't necessarily care whether your HS "teaches to the ACT", they care what ACT score your kid received. And, 1 - 2 pts on the ACT makes a huge difference in how much your college will cost you.
