Holy Cross School honored some of its highest achieving students at a ceremony following our school liturgy last week. Sixteen seniors achieved a score of 30 or higher on the ACT, placing them in the top 10 percent of students taking the ACT in the nation.
Those students were Jay Beatmann, Christian Castro, Alexander Davis, Colin Doody, Thomas Dugal, Andre Farnet, Ethan Garvey, Jaden Guidry, Garrett Lonsberry, Cade Martin, Trevor Terminie, Matthew Thiaville, Mason Wallace, Charles Wellington, Benjamin Young and Blake Ziegler.
In addition, 12 of our students achieved a score of 5 on one or more AP tests. A score of 5 is the highest possible score and indicates the students are extremely well qualified in their respective subject areas.
Students scoring a 5 in AP Biology, taught by Dr. Katherine Schilling, were Cade Martin, Matthew Thiaville and Charles Wellington.
Seniors achieving a 5 in AP English Language and Composition, taught by Mrs. Anne Chabreck, were Jay Beatmann, Alexander Davis, Garrett Lonsberry, Cade Martin, Charles Wellington, Austin Wyman, Benjamin Young and Blake Ziegler.
