Northern Ohio high school student gets perfect ACT score

Officials at the Franciscan Lyceum of Padua in Parma announced that Alex Quang got the perfect score.

PARMA, Ohio — A high school student from northeast Ohio recently earned a perfect score on the ACT’s standardized admissions test.

Officials of the Franciscan High School of Padua in Parma announced that Alex Quang had obtained the score, saying that less than 0.5% of all ACT candidates worldwide obtain a perfect score.

“This achievement means a lot to me,” he said. “I worked really hard to get it, and it took me a few tries before I could get a perfect score.”

Alex participates in Padua’s MedTrack program, an award-winning advanced healthcare program. MedTrack Director Laurie Grabowski describes him as a performer at the highest level.

“He earned near-consecutive A+ grades in a tough junior year semester with five Honors or AP classes.”

But Alex doesn’t take all the credit for his academic success.

“All of my classmates in Padova have played a huge role because they are a huge reason why I love going to school every day,” he said.

His plans are to major in aerospace engineering at the best college he can attend.

Tommy Futey, also a junior at the same school, scored a near-perfect 35 on his ACT – a pass that less than 0.9% of students achieve globally.

“Thank you to all the amazing people in my life who support me and help me achieve everything I can,” Tommy said.

Manager Bob DiRocco said Alex and Tommy are exceptional Bruins.

“Their hard work, focus and determination are exemplary,” DiRocco said. “They are also newly inducted members of the St. Bonaventure Chapter of the National Honor Society, so while their dedication to scholarship comes as no surprise to those who know them, it is a significant achievement that we are happy to celebrate.”
