"The Holy Cross Man is studious. He regards learning as a duty; intellectual perfection as an honor."
Five tigers have taken this part of our school creed to the utmost level. We had five students achieve scores of over 30. Their composite scores above 30 places them in the top seven percent of all test takers.
Wyatt Audler, Gage Baldassaro, Hunter Blankenship, Forrest Lanning, and Blade Schneider all had composite scores over 30 and some made perfect scores on subsections.

We are incredibly proud of and impressed by these gentlemen’s test scores. We look forward to seeing what they accomplish in their senior year.
Gage Baldassaro ’24 started this year’s academic endeavors off by receiving perfect scores in two sub-sections of the ACT standardized test. In April he scored a perfect 36 composite score.

In addition to his academic achievements, Gage is a member of the Holy Cross Varsity Track team, Varsity Cross Country, National Honor Society, and the Brother James McDonnell Scholars program, and he serves as a Holy Cross Ambassador.
Similarly, Wyatt Audler ’24 also achieved an outstanding composite score of 35! This high score is only achieved 0.925% of test takers. He achieved perfect scores on the Science, English, and Reading subsections of the test. His after-school commitments include being a member of the Holy Cross Varsity Track team, Varsity Cross Country, National Honor Society, and Brother James McDonnell Scholars program, and he serves as a Holy Cross Ambassador.
