Sixteen seniors in the Cherry Creek School District earned a perfect score of 36 on the 2016 ACT test. Less than one-tenth of one percent of all students who take the ACT earns a perfect score. Nationally, nearly 2.1 million students took the 2016 ACT and less than 2,000 of them earned a perfect score. In Colorado, 58,616 students who are seniors this year took the test and 62 of them earned a perfect 36. That means that Cherry Creek Schools students represent 25% of the state’s perfect ACT scores.

Each part is scored on its own scale of 1 to 36. A student’s overall test score is the average of those parts. The ACT is accepted by all major colleges and universities as one of the considerations for college admission.
