Kyle Jackson, a member of the Class of 2023, has achieved the highest possible superscore of 36 on the ACT®. Jackson, who began his academic journey at Christian Brothers School before moving on to Jesuit, is the son of David and Donna Jackson.

In addition to his impressive ACT® score, Jackson has also earned two perfect National Latin Exam scores. He has taken on several leadership roles as a student, serving as an executive board member of Mu Alpha Theta, treasurer of the Sports Analysis Club, and captain of several intramural sports teams. Jackson is also a member of the National Honor Society and Music Critics Club.

Jackson’s academic achievements have not gone unnoticed by universities, and he has been awarded the President’s Scholarship from Southern Methodist University, where he plans to study computer science in the fall. The SMU President’s Scholarship offers tuition, fees, and room and board for eight semesters as well as funding for one summer abroad.

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.
