Senior Ben Zalla scored a perfect 36 on the ACT. This is an incredible accomplishment! For some perspective, last year one-tenth of one percent of all students who took the ACT scored a 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 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.

ACT scores are accepted by all major four-year colleges and universities across the U.S.

Ben is also a National Merit Semifinalist based on his PSAT scores.
