Today, African American students have the lowest median ACT score at 16.3 in the US.
As well, African American students have the lowest graduate-level admission test scores
including DAT (Dental), GMAT (graduate) GRE (graduate) LSAT (Law), and MCAT
(Medical). This level of performance is not consistent with the teachings of our Lord and
Savior, Jesus Christ!
The International Hour of Prayer for the Education of African American Students is
our way of uniting the international community to encourage African American Students
to realize a great education and become successful members of society by realizing a
median ACT score of 25. The event will be held virtually via Zoom on Friday, December
10th at 7 PM EST to pray for the needs of African American students, especially those
who are taking the ACT exam on Saturday, December 11th and Sunday, December 12th.
We pray that the International Hour of Prayer sessions will bring academic grace to
African American students and attention to the performance challenges of African
American students in schools today. We hope that it will also inspire African American
students and people everywhere to act on behalf of this population.
Education in America is a privilege and an opportunity afforded to all who seek it.
Therefore, we should do everything we can to ensure that African American students
leverage the opportunities and the privileges that exist in America.
