Thanks to the support and encouragement I received at Alverno, I decided to step outside my comfort zone and pursue an advanced art class. Then, in sophomore year, I decided to become a part of the Hair and Makeup crew for the plays and musicals. Thanks to Alverno, I was able to discover my creative side.

@alvernoheights thrilled to announce that junior Victoria Chen '18 has earned a perfect composite score of 36 on the #ACT! Victoria, who is only 15 years old, is a member of the #AcceleratedHonorsAcademy at #AlvernoHeightsAcademy. She started at Alverno in the fall of 2014 at just 12 years old after skipping both the seventh and eighth grades. In a letter to Victoria recognizing her exceptional achievement, ACT Chief Executive Officer Marten Roorda stated, “Your achievement on the ACT is significant and rare. While test scores are just one of multiple criteria that most colleges consider when making admission decisions, your exceptional ACT composite score should prove helpful as you pursue your education and career goals.” Congratulations Victoria! We are so proud of you! #AlvernoHeightsAcademy #AlvernoHeights60 #AlvernoStudents
