NEW HAVEN, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- Justin Stuckey, senior at Leo Jr. Sr. High School, has earned the highest possible composite score of 36 on the ACT college admission and placement exam.

“Justin’s achievement is significant and rare,” said Jon Whitmore, ACT CEO. Mr. Whitmore further stated that “while test scores are just one of the many criteria that most colleges consider when making admission decisions, an exceptional ACT composite score should prove helpful for education and career goals.”

On average, less than one-tenth of one percent of all test takers earn the top score. Among ACT-tested U.S. high school graduates in the class of 2012, only 781 out of more than 1.66 million students earned a composite score of 36.

Justin’s exceptional score will provide any colleges to which he will choose to apply ample evidence of his readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead. ACT test score are accepted by all major U.S. four-year colleges and universities.

Dr. Neal Brown, Principal of Leo Jr. Sr. High said, “This is an outstanding accomplishment for Justin and his parents. This achievement will open up numerous opportunities for Justin. His future is very bright!”
