ACT Awards Crown Point High School The Red Quill Legacy Award

Crown Point High School was one of just six high schools in Indiana recognized by ACT with The Red Quill Award.

“This award was developed to honor educational professionals who recognize the need for diligent analysis of data and a willingness to develop and enhance curriculum and instruction based on the needs of their learning community,” Red Quill Committee Chairman Phillip J. Daniel wrote in the award letter.

According to Daniel, Crown Point High School received the Red Quill Legacy Award for its long-term commitment leading to increased student achievement and systemic improvements.

ACT is a nonprofit organization founded in 1959 dedicated to helping people achieve education and workplace success. ACT originally stood for “American College Testing,” but was officially shortened to just ACT in 1996 to reflect their programs and services provided beyond college entrance testing.
