Are STMA Graduates Prepared for College?

STMA students consistently score above the state & national average in the ACT-MME testing which is administered annually. In 2014 our school's average ACT score was a 26.9. The state of Michigan's average score was a 20.1.

The state of Michigan sets benchmark scores to show the minimum score needed on an ACT subject-area test to indicate a 50% chance of obtaining a B or higher in the corresponding credit-bearing college courses, which include English, Composition, Algebra, Social Science, and Biology. When the 2014 scores were tabulated in all 4 subject matters, the state average for meeting college readiness benchmarks was 22%. The average STMA score for college readiness benchmarks was 78%.

So the answer is yes, STMA grads are academically prepared for college. But we aren't content with simply preparing our students for academic success. The spiritual and human formation of an STMA student is equally important and is treated as such. Daily Mass, monthly confession, and weekly Adoration prepares our students for the future, both here on earth and for the hereafter.
