Three Jesuit High School students earned the highest possible composite score of 36 on the ACT test they took in September. The three students — seniors David Gravolet and David Hart and junior Charles Korndorffer — raise the total number of current Jesuit students with perfect ACT scores to six.
Gravolet, who attended St. Andrew the Apostle School and Christian Brothers School before moving to Jesuit, is the son of Benjamin and Katie Gravolet.
Hart, who attended St. Philip Neri School and Christian Brothers School before moving to Jesuit, is the son of David and Kathy Hart.
Korndorffer, who attended Stuart Hall School before moving to Jesuit, is the son of James and Melanie Korndorffer.
The other three students with recent perfect scores on the ACT are seniors Andrew Fugetta and Caleb Rogers and junior Christopher Vuong.
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.
On average, fewer than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score. In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2016, only 2,235 out of nearly 2.1 million graduates who took the ACT earned a composite score of 36.
