Kennesaw teen gets perfect score on ACT

Posted: Updated:
KENNESAW, Ga. - It’s a rare and difficult accomplishment, but a Kennesaw teen has achieved a perfect score on the American College Test.

Caroline Surratt of Harrison High School in Kennesaw scored a perfect 36 out of 36 on the ACT.

The achievement has never been done at her high school before, and on average less than .1 percent of students get a perfect score.

Surratt credits her hard work to study and prepare for the test.

“I took a lot of practice tests. I had a Princeton Review study book that I used,” said Surratt. “The highest possible score is a 36 and on my fourth attempt of the ACT I got a 36.”

“It's a rare accomplishment, and, you know, it's quite an accomplishment, and we're very excited and very proud,” said Surratt’s father.

Surratt’s score helped her receive a scholarship from The University of Alabama where Surratt plans to join her sister in the fall.
