SYMMES TOWNSHIP, OH (November 9, 2020) – Two Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy seniors – Scott Burk of Loveland, son of Andrea Burk, and Adam Jutt of Mason, son of Mike and Anne Jutt – recently earned the highest possible ACT composite score of 36.

The ACT is a standardized curriculum-based achievement exam used for college admissions that measures what students have learned in school. It covers tests in four academic areas of English, mathematics, reading and science reasoning, each scored on a scale from 1–36. A student’s composite score is the average of the four test scores. Students who earn a 36 composite score have likely mastered all the skills and knowledge they will need to succeed in first-year college courses in the core subject areas. The score for ACT’s optional writing test is reported separately and is not included within the ACT composite score. ACT scores are accepted by all major four-year colleges and universities across the U.S.



“We are so proud of Adam and Scott for this remarkable accomplishment,” said CHCA Assistant Head of School Dr. Dean Nicholas. “Having known both since they were elementary students, it’s been fun watching them grow into bright, engaging, articulate servant leaders in our Upper School.”

Not only are Burk and Jutt academic peers together at CHCA, they have also been best friends since they were three-years old! Over the many years of their friendship they have been through a lot together, including the loss of Burk’s father when he was 10-years old. As Burk’s mother shares, “They have always supported each other in good and hard times and truly enjoy spending time together.” Both boys have gone on to succeed in their years at CHCA, being involved in many activities, including athletics and the fine arts. Their senior year is getting off to a fun start together as well, as Jutt and Burk were voted Class President and Vice President, respectively. And in the academic realm, in addition to their perfect ACT scores, both students have also been named National Merit Semifinalists.

“As special as this feat may be,” Nicholas said, “it is only a small part of what makes them incredible members of our community!”
