For the third time in just two years, a VBCPS student has earned a perfect score on the ACT. This year, Ocean Lakes High School senior Nathan Luksik earned the highest possible composite score of 36 on the ACT college admissions test. According to ACT, on average, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of the nation’s test takers earn this top score.
The ACT, which is the leading college readiness assessment accepted by all four-year colleges and universities in the United States, tests students in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each section is scored on a scale from 1-36 and a student’s composite score is the average of the four scores.
Luksik is enrolled in the Mathematics and Science Academy at Ocean Lakes High School, and he has applied to Duke, University of California Berkley, University of Pennsylvania, Harvard, Yale, Princeton and the University of Virginia. He plans to pursue a double major in computer engineering and economics with a concentration in finance.
