The ACT is often used by colleges and universities when considering applicants for the coming school year.
“I feel like a score of 36 is a pretty big achievement and it really makes the (college) application shine a little bit,” said Lou.
The average national composite score is 21. DCSD has an average composite score of 22.5.
“I feel like getting a 36 opens up a lot of doors and I’m excited,” said Cousins.
