Earlier this academic year, senior Preston Rumney of Jesuit’s Class of 2023 earned the highest possible superscore of 36 on the ACT®, a national standardized measure of college readiness. Rumney attended Christian Brothers School and is the son of Richard and Stacey Rumney.

Alongside his personal academic accomplishments including his designation as a National Merit Finalist, Rumney has contributed his leadership and expertise to Jesuit’s co-curricular offerings as an attorney for Mock Trial during its most recent state championship and the president of Mu Alpha Theta during the group’s back-to-back successful state campaigns in 2022 and 2023. He is also a member of Model UN, a big brother, a founder of the Classics Society, and a volunteer tutor.

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 whereas a student’s superscore, a measure introduced in 2016, accounts for the highest score from each subtest from two different testing dates.

Above all, Jesuit relentlessly pursues God’s greater glory. While students’ academic accolades reflect the school’s mission, they are not the mission itself. They instead signify that Blue Jays are becoming the men that they were made to be: men of faith and men for others.

Alongside celebrating students who attain these academic accomplishments, Jesuit also highlights graduating seniors who are named winners of highly selective merit-based national scholarship competitions. Click here to read about more of these students.
