PHOENIX, April 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Hearts is excited to announce one of its students is among the few to earn the highest possible ACT composite score of 36. Audrey Beermann, a junior at Glendale Preparatory Academy in Peoria, is among the less than 1% who achieved this distinguished honor. Last year, more than 1.9 million students took the college standardized test. Of these students, fewer than 3,800 received a perfect composite score of 36. The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science, each scored on a scale of 1-36. A student's composite score is the average of the four tests.
"I am very grateful for the education I've received at Glendale Prep," said Beermann. "We are taught to think critically, seek truth wholeheartedly, and communicate effectively; skills I've discovered can be applied to a wide variety of challenges I've come to face. I also thank my family, friends, instructors and coaches for their continued support in my education."
In addition to maintaining a weighted GPA of 4.867, Beermann is an active member of the Glendale Prep drama program and participates on the cross country and soccer teams.
"The Glendale Prep community is proud of Audrey and this truly amazing academic accomplishment," said Kyle Navarrette, headmaster at Glendale Prep. "Her commitment to her education and extraordinary work ethic is indicative of the bright future ahead in whatever field she may pursue."
Glendale Preparatory Academy is a member of the prestigious Great Hearts Academies network of schools in metro Phoenix. The public charter school has more than 530 students in grades 6th through 12th. It is located at 23276 N. 83rd Ave. in Peoria.
