Comparison of SEO Scholars and National Test-Takers’ SAT Scores
SEO Scholars Outscore National Test-Takers on the SAT
Nationwide, low-income students typically score 150-300 points less on the SAT than other students do. In fact, research from The Education Trust finds that students of color and from disadvantaged backgrounds, on average, don’t do as well on the SAT as their peers from wealthier families–even when those students start out as high-achievers.
A 2014 study of SEO Scholars, however, shows that for the past five years, our Black and Hispanic Scholars outscored all national test-takers on the SAT. This holds true even when comparing SAT scores by grade point average.
