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 test scores. On average, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score. Fugetta is now the fourth member of the Class of 2019 to score a perfect 36 on the ACT, which is in addition to the four students from the Class of 2018 with perfect scores.
