VCS Students Qualify for Bright Futures with SAT School Day Scores
DELAND – Volusia County high school students participated in SAT School Day assessments for the first time this school year, with scores providing a baseline for future SAT School Day assessment data.
A total of 585 students (11th- and 12th-graders) participating in the SAT School Day earned a qualifying score for the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship, which provides either 75% or 100% of their tuition/fees at Florida community colleges and state universities, depending on the criteria met.
“The SAT School Day program is a great opportunity for our students to prepare for college admission and to qualify for the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship, and we are pleased to participate,” said VCS Superintendent Dr. Scott Fritz. “We are so proud of the 585 VCS students who earned a qualifying score for Bright Futures this year. Our students’ futures are truly bright!”
The SAT School Day program provides students the opportunity to take the SAT during the school day and is offered free of charge.
VCS high school students took the tests – with 9th-graders taking the PSAT 8/9, 10th-graders taking the PSAT/NMSQT, and 11th- and 12th-graders taking the SAT School Day. The progression of assessments helps students prepare for the SAT.
Volusia students’ mean scores for the SAT School Day assessments are as follows:
- 12th Grade – 969
- 11th Grade – 955
- 10th Grade – 879
- 9th Grade – 840
