Academic Data

SI offers an excellent college preparatory curriculum, consisting of math, science, English, language, fine arts, social science and religious studies. Most students go beyond the UC requirements by taking three or four years of science and four years of math. More than half of the senior class takes Calculus. Many also take four years of a language. There are many ways in which SI’s academic excellence can be measured. Some are internal and some are external. In general, SI looks at the following data:

GPAs

SI's GPAs have remained steady over the years at approximately 3.29,which is a B+. There is usually a slight drop from Fall semester to Spring semester, which is not statistically significant, and girls tend to have a slightly higher gpa (+.1) overall than boys do, though, this is less of a difference than research has consistently found nationally. One of our areas of future study is to see if there is a consistent difference by subject.

SAT Scores

For the past five years, the mean SAT score has been about 180 points higher than the California or the national average, which puts our students at about the 82nd percentile. In 2006, a Writing component was added to the SAT, bringing the composite score to a possible 2400 from the previous 1600. Further study is being done on the gender differences and comparisions to the other 47 Jesuit schools in the nation.

SAT Subjects Scores

SAT Subject Tests (previously known as the SAT II Tests) provide colleges information about specific strenghts that students might have. Colleges require between one and three subject tests as part of the application process, but which subject is up to the student. As of 2006, the UC system stopped accepting the SAT Math Level I test and the English Literature test, which had previously been among the most popular tests (hence, the drop in scores due to the best students opting for other exams). Further external comparisons are in progress.
