Two CDH Students Ace the ACT
What are the odds of acing the ACT? Nationally, while the number of students earning a perfect composite score of 36 varies from year to year, on average less than one-tenth of one percent of students who take the ACT earns the top score. Of the 1.8 million ACT test takers in the high school Class of 2013, only 1,162 students earned a composite score of 36.
This year, Cretin-Derham Hall is proud to claim two of those "One-tenth of One Percenters: juniors Maria Neuzil and Anna Kalkman. Both passed the test with a perfect 36 on their very first try and join a distinguished group of alumni/alumnae who, in the last 15 years, has earned a perfect 36, including Julie Rolfes ’04, Ann Wolski ’09, and Joseph Vanderwall ’13.
