BAY CITY - All Saints Central High School junior Paul Kuczynski recently earned a perfect composite score of 36 on the ACT, the standardized test for high school achievement and college admissions in the United States.
That achievement puts him in the top one tenth of 1 percent of test takers nationwide. Only 1 percent of students who have taken the ACT since 2007 have scored 32 or higher, according to ACT.org. Three other All Saints juniors also scored composite ACT scores of more than 30.
"This is just a glimpse of the great things accomplished within our Bay Area Catholic Schools, where our parishes, staff, students and parents provide an environment in which each student can excel and reach their potential, fully developing their God-given gifts and talents," said Sharon Pagryzinski, enrollment coordinator for Bay Area Catholic Schools.
Kuczynski also has been active in drama, been involved with student government and played on the tennis team during his time at All Saints. He is a member of Key Club, National Honor Society and Voices for Life. He serves as a sacristan, lector and altar server at weekday school Masses and is an extraordinary minister of the Eucharist and altar server at his parish, St. Stanislaus Kostka.
Bay Area Catholic Schools continues the Catholic school tradition begun in Bay City-area in the 1850s, providing a solid faith-based education for students enrolled in 3-year-old preschool through 12th grade. Learn more at www.bacschools.org.
