AG Junior earns highest possible ACT score

Just 1% of students achieve this honor nationwide


WEST GROVE – Avon Grove High School Junior Noah Donten scored the highest possible ACT Composite Score of 36, an accomplishment that about one-tenth of 1% of students who take the ACT achieve each year.


The ACT consists of tests in English, math, reading and science, and a student’s score is the average of the four scores.



Avon Grove High’s Noah Donten ‘aces’ the ACTs.

“The AP Curriculum absolutely prepared me,” said Noah. “The guidance counselors talked a lot to us about preparing for our college entrance exams.  The AP curriculum and Academically Talented program did an excellent job with preparation, too.  It’s the little things you don’t think about each day but become ingrained in you that really make a difference.”


The 16 year-old is planning to major in Actuarial Science and is currently considering Penn State, Temple, and Robert Morris.


“Noah is a very capable and humble student,” said Avon Grove High School Principal Scott DeShong. “While his family and teachers have prepared him well for his future, his personal qualities and characteristics will take him far in life after graduating from Avon Grove.”


Last year only about 1,500 students out of the 1.92 million who take the ACT scored as well as Noah did. ACT scores are accepted by all major U.S. colleges.
