MEDIA RELEASE
Columbus, GA- The 2019 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.

“It is gratifying to report our continued progress toward all-time highs, on our composite score and in the areas of Reading and English, while also continuing to close the gap with the state average. Although our number of test-takers for the ACT declined slightly this year, more students pursued the SAT. With that in mind, we will continue to offer challenging coursework and support to ensure our students have the best opportunities for success on these assessments,” said Dr. David Lewis, Superintendent of Education.
