My 12 year old son just got these scores on his first ACT:
Composite: 26 English: 28 Math: 20 Reading: 31 Science: 26
We aren't doing accelerated work at home (he's still in pre-algebra and middle school English), and can't afford to do a talent search or special camp, which are the only suggestions I can find from searching online. We live in a state without a lot of regulation as far as what curriculum I cover, so I'm wondering if I should make some changes.
Based on these scores, should he skip a grade or do early college entrance? Or would it be smarter to hold off and graduate a normal age so that he can shoot for more scholarships and better school options? He has a great social outlet in athletics, so he's happy to do independent academic work on his own.
