Christian Heritage School Upper School Update - January 2017

The Governor's Office of Student Achievement has released school data for the end of the 2015-2016 school year, and Christian Heritage School students once again performed at or above the standard set by area high schools. In comparing our students' achievement with those from area schools in Dalton City, Whitfield County, and Murray County, Christian Heritage stands out above the rest.

One of the key measures for high schools in the state of Georgia is the number of graduates who are eligible for the HOPE scholarship program. For the class of 2016, seventy-six percent of graduates were eligible to receive funds. This percentage is higher than any other high school in the area.

ACT scores are another area where the class of 2016 led the way. Our students' 22.2 composite average score was the highest in the area. On the subject scores, our students outperformed their peers from the surrounding schools in every area of the the test.

A third area of strong performance by our students was in AP tests. We gave 68 tests across seven subject areas for students in grades 10 through 12. Once again, our students scored quite well, outperforming area public schools in almost every discipline. AP tests are scored on a scale of 1 to 5, with a 3 or higher considered to be a "passing" grade. On the calculus test only two other schools had students who passed, and in macroeconomics Christian Heritage students were the only ones among all seven schools with a passing score.

*Note - "n/a" indicates that the course was not offered or that no students took that test*

We've said before that at Christian Heritage, the results of our hard work and dedication to our students are not measured in mere statistics, but in the prepared hearts and minds of our graduates. However, statistics like these do help to give the whole picture of what is being accomplished every day by our dedicated teachers and fantastic students. It is truly a great time to be a Christian Heritage Lion!
