The Louisiana Department of Education reports that the Lafayette Parish School System maintained its average ACT score of 19.5, which ranks 8th among 70 districts statewide. LDOE reported that the state average ACT score for students in the 2020 graduating class statewide dipped slightly from the previous year, down .2 points, to 18.7. According to Chief Academic Officer, Dr. Mark Rabalais, “The ACT test is a mutually beneficial assessment for both students and schools. It allows for students to demonstrate college readiness skills
and knowledge to increase the opportunities for education beyond high school. For our schools, it provides evidence and results that allow us, as educators, to reflect on how well we prepared students to continue learning or future pursuits. Ultimately, these results drive improvement for previous, past, and future cohorts of students.” LPSS has made ACT test preparation a focus in recent years, providing students with support and resources to help them succeed. ACT scores are factors in college admission, financial aid, and
scholarship determinations, so it is important that students do well on the standardized test.
