The Archdiocese of Omaha recently released information regarding the performance of its students on the ACT – a college readiness exam. 17 Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of Omaha have beaten their ACT composite score setting a new archdiocesan record of 24.9. Archdiocesan students in every ethnic group outperformed the state averages on the ACT within that ethnic group.
All students across the board outperformed state averages. Students continue to outperform other Nebraska school districts in English, mathematics, reading and science for the past 25 years. Locally, the Pope John Class of 2016 is a part of that long standing trend. The group of 17 seniors scored a composite of 23.4 on their ACTs. This exceeds the state school average of 21.4 and places them near the 24.9 record set by Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Omaha.
