99% OF CATHOLIC MEMORIAL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TAKE ACT AND
BEAT STATE AND LOCAL RESULTS


Catholic Memorial High School (CMH) class of 2011 once again out- paced their state and local peers on the ACT, earning a composite score of 24.6 of 36 versus the state-wide average of 22.2. With 99% of its students taking the ACT it boasts a five-year average composite of 24.8. A collegeprep school with the International Baccalaureate Program, Catholic Memorial, does not impose a selective admission process.

Detailed results from the 205 member class of 2011 are stellar

- 80% of the test takers averaged 27.2. CMH students exceed by 15% the segmented ACT College Readiness benchmark scores for Math, Science, English, and Reading.
- Earned $13.6 million in college scholarship awards from selective colleges and community
organizations.

Catholic Memorial principal, Bob Hall, expects exceptional results because, “With increasingly robust learning support services, we prepare every student for success in high school and in college. We meet the needs of the valedictorian and the student who struggles for a variety of reasons. This year students returned to a redesigned Academic Resource Center and we welcomed an exceptional educator and alumna, Sue Exner Ruf ’69, to our team. It’s exciting that Sue chose to cap her career at CMH after 37 years serving the Waukesha Public Schools."

Hall concluded, “Every one of the 2011 Catholic Memorial High School graduates is to be commended for their academic success and their growth through extracurricular participation. At CMH the winning combination of family, faculty, and faith is what contributes to this outstandingly high ACT composite score and to all other measures of success.”
