In 2010, Holy Cross High School began acknowledging students who scored a 30 or higher on the ACT Test, which is used as an entrance examination by a majority of colleges and universities. A score of 30 places a student in the top 4% of students nationally and is a benchmark score all students strive to attain. It also practically guarantees students full scholarships to a large number of universities in the country.
The fact that so many students are achieving at a high level is credit to the ability and work ethic of our students and a reflection of the commitment of our faculty and staff.

The 2011 senior class, in fact, set a high standard for others to follow. Among their achievements, fifteen students scored 30 or above on the ACT, five were selected for the Kentucky Governor’s school for the Arts, two received National Merit Scholarships, and one was a National Merit Finalist. In addition, the Class of 2011 had the highest ACT in a decade with a mark of 23.6 and nearly one third scored in the 80th percentile. The accomplishments of these students and the student body as a whole are remarkable, especially in light of the fact that Holy Cross educates students across the academic spectrum.
