TESTING INFORMATION

Due to COVID-19, many colleges have suspended the requirement of the ACT or SAT for the graduating Classes of 2021 and 2022. Check with your college of interest to determine their requirements. Scholarships may still require a test score. 
 

ACT TEST

GENERAL INFORMATION: This test should be taken at least once during high school. The test is a college entrance exam and is accepted by most post-secondary institutions. The highest scores are taken and may be necessary to complete applications for education beyond high school. It is best if testing has taken place prior to a student's senior year. The writing portion of the test is encouraged, but please also check with your possible colleges/universities to see if they require it for admission.
