ACT Research has also shown that it is the rigor of coursework rather than simply the number of core courses that has the greatest impact on ACT performance and college readiness. The following scores reflect the achievement of LCHS graduate on the ACT and an indication of the extent to which they are prepared for college level work. The ACT consists of curriculum based tests of educational development in core subject areas designed to measure the skills needed for success in first year college coursework.

LCHS 23.5 21.6 23.4 21.4 22.6
STATE 21.0 21.2 21.6 21.3 21.4
