Junior Samuel Schlafer earned the highest possible 36 on the ACT®, a national standardized measure of college readiness. Schlafer attended Belle Chasse Academy and is the son of Christopher and Evelyn Schlafer.

Alongside his personal academic achievements, Schlafer has contributed to various groups at Jesuit, including the varsity swimming team, powerlifting team, Junior Sodality, and an altar server. He is also a member of the National Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society, and Mu Alpha Theta.

Outside of his academic and co-curricular pursuits, Schlafer volunteers with Henry’s Hearts, St. Michael’s bead donation, and assists with retreats for lower grade levels. Additionally, he plays the violin and practices martial arts.

Schlafer has time to decide his future, but leans toward studying engineering or physical therapy beyond his Jesuit career.

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.
