Brady Green, a 2019 Lakewood Catholic Academy graduate and current senior at St. Ignatius High School, has earned the highest possible ACT composite score of 36. Fewer than half of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score. In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2021, only 4,055 out of 1.29 million students who took the ACT earned a top composite score of 36.
The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science, each scored on a scale of 1–36. A student’s composite score is the average of the four test scores. The score for ACT’s optional writing test is reported separately and is not included within the ACT composite score.
“Earning a top score on the ACT is a remarkable achievement,” said ACT CEO Janet Godwin. “A student’s exceptional score of 36 will provide any college or university with ample evidence of their readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.”
The ACT is a curriculum-based achievement exam that measures what students have learned in school. Students who earn a 36 composite score have likely mastered all of the skills and knowledge they will need to succeed in first-year college courses in the core subject areas.
“Brady is an incredible young man,” commented LCA President Brian Sinchak. “Beyond this significant academic achievement, Brady also gives back to his community through his leadership as an Eagle Scout. We couldn’t be happier for Brady.”
In the End, It’s the Beginning that Counts!
Lakewood Catholic Academy strongly believes that academic skills that lead to success are cultivated in children’s first experiences of school.
