Three St. Patrick Catholic High School Students Score 36 on ACT

ACT preparatory strategies are embedded into our St. Patrick Catholic High School curriculum. As the ACT is the leading U.S. college admissions test measuring what is learned in high school to determine academic readiness for college, we strive each and every day to ensure that our students graduate from St. Patrick Catholic High School with the tools needed for success in college.

With that, we are excited to announce that Matthew Bisner (senior), Stephen Azar (junior), and Max Grill (junior) have all achieved a perfect score of 36 on the ACT. Additionally, five students have scored a 35 including Tyler Jackson, Jack McKee, Amelie Million, Lauren Skinner and Richard Springer. In total, we have 37 students that have scored a 30 or higher and many others who continue to increase their scores. Among high school graduates in the class of 2017 who took the test, only 2,760 out of 2.03 million students earned a composite score of 36, according to the most recent ACT National Profile Report.

St. Patrick Catholic High School boasts the highest ACT scores along the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and it is one of the top achieving schools in the state and region. “Given the small percentage of students who earn a perfect score in any given year, the fact that three students from St. Patrick achieved a score of 36 is extremely remarkable,” said Matt Buckley, principal of St. Patrick Catholic High School. “I continue to be very proud of our students and faculty and their dedication to setting and achieving these high scholastic goals. At St. Patrick, our teachers and staff are called to educate scholars, train disciples, and support champions.”
