Another Perfect ACT Score at CCS!

Lucas Lindsey, son of Dr. Phillip and Joy Lindsey and a junior at Crossings Christian School, earned the highest possible ACT composite score of 36. On average, less than one-tenth of one percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score. A 36 is a rare accomplishment!

Lucas is used to making pitch perfect music as an accomplished classical pianist and member of the CCS Orchestra, playing both the viola and the cello. His perfect ACT score should come as no surprise, either, as he has competed on the Crossings academic and scholastic teams since lower school, including as a starter on the 3A State Championship team in 2020.

Lucas first sat for the ACT as a seventh grade student and again his sophomore year before earning his perfect score. He attributes his accomplishment to taking practice tests at home and his love of learning, in general. When asked what he loves most about learning, Lucas “appreciates his teachers and how much they care about students and their success.” He is equally thankful for his school friends, most of whom he has known since Lucas began attending CCS in preschool.

When asked about Lucas’ achievement, Director of College & Academic Counseling, Keri Shields, remarked, “In my 13 years as the academic counselor at Crossings Christian School, we’ve only had two perfect ACT composite scores. Lucas achieved this score between his sophomore and junior year in high school. I’m proud of him. Best of all, he doesn’t need to worry about taking the ACT ever again!”

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. The national average ACT composite score is 20.7, Oklahoma’s composite average is 19.6. The CCS Class of 2021 had an average ACT composite of 26.4.

Like the SAT, ACT scores are accepted by all major U.S. colleges. Exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.
