JOLIET – Joliet Catholic Academy junior Michael Bannon received the best birthday present he could have imagined.

Bannon found out on April 30, the night before his 17th birthday, that he had aced the ACT with a perfect score of 36, including scores of 36 on all sub-levels of the test in reading, English, math and science.

“What a phenomenal achievement for Michael,” said Jeffrey Budz, JCA’s Principal/CEO. “You rarely hear about perfect scores of 36 all across the board, but it is a testament to how hard he has worked in the classroom. It’s a tremendous tribute and a tremendous honor for such a great kid.”
