Okay.... so I didn't win the Code Orange College Contest...... well, hopefully we won't need to worry about how to pay for Josh's college education.
Josh is a 7th grader, actually only half way through his 7th grade year. He is in the Duke Talent Identification Program (Or Duke TIP) and as part of the program he is elligible to take the ACT or SAT exam. So we thought he should go with the ACT to start off with this year. This is just for practice really.
To our surprise the scores came in the mail the other day and he got a 26!!!!
For those of you unfamilar with the scoring, the perfect score is a 36.
The senior class of 2007 had an average score of 21.1, so a 26 is pretty darn good for a 7th grader! LOL!
I am really proud of him. He's not the average teen by any means. He loves to read, write stories and pays close attention to politics.
I did get a good chuckle from reading the scoring paper and it said that if your child has at least a 20 - 22 in the subject areas, they are most likely ready for college. *hehe*
