Bob Jones students score high on ACT

Bob Jones students are perfection, at least when it comes to their ACT scores.

The 2011 graduating class and 2012 rising seniors scored high on the ACT.

In the class of 2011, 115 seniors scored a 30 and above, three scored a 35, and 11 scored a 34, with senior Katherine Boyer scoring a perfect 36.

In the rising senior class, three students scored a perfect 36, three scored a 35 and 13 scored a 34. Eighty-five students scored a 30 or above.

“Bob Jones students continue to amaze me,” said College and Career Counselor Sheila Roberts. “I think it’s directly attributed to the fact we offer an extremely rigorous course curriculum.”

Bob Jones offers 24 Advance Placement classes, numerous honors classes, and an ACT test prep course.

Among other schools, students who graduated have also been admitted to Harvard, Princeton, Duke, John Cabot University in Rome, Italy, Keio University in Japan, West Point, John Hopkins University and American University in Rome, Italy.

“I do think the community is unique in that some of the family have military and technology careers, and maybe university professors,” Roberts said. “I think the families in Madison are involved in their student’s academic lives in that they are helping students to focus on school and what they might want to do in the future. It just comes from a focus and a discipline.”
