Archdiocese ACT Scores Set a New Record – Start Your Children on the Path Early

ACTAvg1991 2016Seventeen Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of Omaha have once again beaten their previous ACT composite high score setting a new archdiocesan record, of 24. 9, up from 24.6 while the state average dropped a tenth of a point to 21.4! ACTCompositescore2016byEthnicityOur students outperform the state averages in every ethnic category. Take a look for yourself. For 25 years our Archdiocesan composite score has been on an aggressive path upwards with our students outperforming other Nebraska school districts in English, mathematics, reading and science. We significantly beat the National average ACT score of 20.8. Patrick Slattery, Superintendent of Archdiocese of Omaha Catholic schools says, “ The majority of our graduates are products of our 53 grade schools. Their success in high school is a result of the solid teaching and learning occurring in our grade schools.” At St. Mary’s over the last three years about 50 percent of our graduates have gone on to Catholic high schools. Higher ACT scores mean a greater likelihood for college scholarships. Start your children early on their path to success by starting that catholic education in elementary school. Take another look at St. Mary’s.
