Monday, November 30, 2009
Strake Jesuit has been recognized by the Texas ACT Council with the 2009 College Readiness Award for maintaining or increasing the number of students taking the ACT Assessment over the past five years and significantly increasing their level of achievement and college readiness. Less than 5% of the high schools in Texas receive this recognition.
According to Karen L. Pennell. Assistant Vice President and ACT Southwest Regional Manager, "The Texas ACT Council wanted to recognize those Texas high schools that have made significant strides in increasing the college readiness of their graduates as demonstrated by their ACT score increases over the last five years. This can only happen as a result of the school's faculty and staff efforts and the dedication of Strake Jesuit's students and parents to focus on college readiness and raise the level of college readiness for all students."
