FREDERICKSBURG, VA – With recent reports of national averages on the SAT college-admissions test falling, Fredericksburg Christian Schools (FCS) have seen an increase in the scores of their students over the past three years, well surpassing local and national averages. This year's FCS average of 1635 is more than 100 points above the state average of 1517 and more than 150 points above the national average of 1471.

This increase continues a trend which began three years ago. In 2011 FCS students earned an average SAT score of 1551. That grew to 1559 in 2012 and continued to increase this year.

"The improvement in the average SAT score for FCS students is indicative of our goal of providing our students with a well-rounded education," said FCS Superintendent Rick Yost. "FCS' curriculum offers students an education with a college-prep focus that prepares them well for the SAT and the PSAT tests."

The increase in scores at FCS can be seen across the board in all three areas of the SAT test: verbal, math and writing.
