Area SAT Scores
Tuesday, 14 September 2010

September 14--  Robert Toombs Christian Academy and Vidalia High School topped area schools this year in Scholastic Aptitude Testing.

Both schools exceeded the average state score of 1,453 and RTCA beat the national average score of 1,509 points. RTCA students averaged 1,608 points.

Sixty-two VHS students took the test and averaged 1,456 points.  Principal Dr. Garrett Wilcox is proud of the students, "It was a good group of students who wanted to do well and, hopefully, the instruction they received gave them the opportunity to be successful."

Dr. Wilcox also credits other schools in the system for laying the foundation before the students reach high school.  "It should give the system some amount of pride.  There is a foundation laid with these kids at a young age and they finish up at the high school and we sometimes feel we're the only ones who played a part in that, but it should be a point of pride for the whole system," he said.

Vidalia High School came in fourth among the 23 schools in the 1st District Regional Educational Services Area.  Savannah Arts Academy came in first with 1,712 points, Richmond Hill High School was second with an average score of 1,525 and Camden County High School students averaged 1,483.

Comparing area schools, Jeff Davis County SAT-takers came in third behind RTCA and Vidalia, Toombs County students ranked fourth, Montgomery County fifth, Appling County sixth, Tattnall County seventh, Treutlen eighth, Dublin and Metter tied for ninth, Swainsboro tenth and Wheeler Co ranked eleventh.
