About the ACT: Beginning in spring 2015, all eleventh grade students will take The ACT® test. The ACT is a tool that assesses readiness for college. The assessment is based on the ACT College and Career Readiness Standards which are empirically derived descriptions of essential skills and knowledge students need to know to be ready for college. Required by Act 200, ACT scores will be used for state and federal accountability. The ACT consists of four multiple-choice tests (English, mathematics, reading, science) and a writing test.

Open Quote As a parent, may children attended many different forms of schools (private, public, magnet, virtual, homeschool and Governors School) depending on each child's academic situation. Now as a grandparent, I have watched this first year charter school with great interest. Although YPA struggles in some areas (overcrowding ... establishing new routines) it is right on target in all the ways that truly count (teacher dedication, student engagement, rigorous academics and service for students with special needs). YPA is off to a good start and well worth investing in! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
