John Paul the Great student achieves top ACT score

Benjamin Noa Raffier, a junior at St. John Paul the Great Catholic High School in Potomac Shores, recently earned the highest possible ACT composite score of 36.

Raffier is a member of the National Honor Society, the Science National Honor Society, the Mu Alpha Theta Mathematics Honor Society, the Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica and the National English Honor Society. He is a representative for his class in the Student Leadership Association, is secretary for the Science National Honor Society, and tutors students after school in math, science and Spanish. He is a varsity athlete on the swim team, and runs cross-country and track and field.

Only around two-tenths of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score. In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2018, only 3,741 out of more than 1.9 million graduates who took the ACT earned a top composite score of 36.
