When it comes to SAT scores kids home schooled for tennis cannot compete with the graduates of the top high schools.
I will be the 1st to tell I am not big on school and I am glad my player takes his time aboutg getting it done , having said that he just finished for a break and ended up holding a 3.9 that included 4 Ap courese and 2 other junk courses and his last 3 test score sent back were all above 90% .
But remember college is not the goal .
