A Campton Hills resident has earned a perfect score on his ACT test.
According to a news release from St. Francis High School in Wheaton, Sam Andrzejewski, 17, of Campton Hills earned a 36 on his ACT. Andrzejewski is a senior at the school.
Andrzejewski said in the release that he took online practice tests and is enrolled in several honors classes.
“All of St. Francis’ classes have helped me a lot,” he said. “I knew almost everything on the test already so I didn’t have to study as much as I would have.”
According to the release, in 2021, only 0.3% of all ACT test-takers earned a perfect score. Andrzejewski’s brother John, who graduated from St. Francis in 2021, also earned a perfect score.
On the day of the test, Sam said he felt well-prepared and motivated.
“I had some coffee and mentally prepared myself,” he said. “When I walked out, I was pretty sure I got a 36. I couldn’t think of a question I would have gotten wrong.”
Andrzejewski has a few schools in mind for college, namely Georgetown University, where John is a sophomore, the University of Chicago and Washington University in St. Louis. Sam plans to major in economics and has long-term goals of serving as a CEO of a company or starting his own business, according to the release.
In the past five years, St. Francis has had five students earn a perfect ACT score, one perfect ACT Superscore and one perfect SAT score.
