New numbers released just this morning from the College Board show Virginia’s students are scoring higher than the national average on the SATs.

The commonwealth's graduating seniors scored higher numbers than public school students nationwide on the reading, math and writing!

The average score of 508 on the reading part of the tests were 17 points higher than the national average.

In all, 68 percent of the state`s public school graduates in 2012 took the SAT.

This past February, the College Board ranked Virginia third in the nation in how its students scored on advanced placement exams.
