Every year the Illinois Student Assistance Commission, or ISAC, recognizes the top performing high school seniors in the state with the Illinois State Scholar award. The award is based on students’ ACT and SAT test scores, unweighted class rank, and unweighted GPA. About 10% of seniors in Illinois receive this award. However, this year 164 Benet Academy seniors were recognized as Illinois State Scholars. This was over 53% of the senior class and is an exciting achievement for both the students and the school.
The names of the students are listed on the ISAC website:
