Students In Fairfax County Score Above National Average On SAT

The Fairfax County, Virginia, school system said Wednesday the Class of 2021 performed above the national average on the SAT, and said only slightly fewer students took it compared to last year. The Fairfax County overall mean score of 1201 surpassed both the state average of 1151 and the global average of 1060, the school system said. All scores were based on the College Board public reporting as of Sept. 15, 2020. According to wtop.com, "The College Board reported a 31.4% drop in SAT participation globally due to pandemic challenges and test cancellations. The number of graduating students in Virginia who took the SAT dropped from 65% to 41%. The drop was even sharper in Maryland, from 85% to 47% of graduating seniors. In D.C., the College Board said, 100% of graduating seniors took the SAT in 2020; that figure fell to 90% in 2021." As per wtop.com, "Fairfax County’s participation rate dropped just 4.4%. FCPS offered SAT School Day for the first time in September 2020. It offered students the opportunity to take the SAT at no charge to them at their school on a designated weekday. As a result of the program, 9,318 Fairfax County seniors took the SAT, which represented 63% of the Fairfax County Public Schools senior class. FCPS will again be offering the SAT School Day to grade 12 students on Oct. 13."
