A local student has achieved a perfect ACT score.
St. Cloud Area School District 742 says Tech High School senior Clifford (Tom) Julstrom earned a perfect ACT composite score of 36.
The ACT is an entrance exam for high school students’ college readiness. Students with higher ACT scores tend to get accepted to more universities.
Earning a perfect ACT score is a rare feat. Only 12 percent of seniors in the district have earned a 28 or higher, which is in the 90th percentile. Just 6 percent of seniors have reached the 95th percentile.
Julstrom hasn’t decided on a university yet, but is leaning towards the University of Minnesota. He plans on studying computer science with an interest in politics.
