ACT Information

ACT

The ACT is a test that some sophomores and many juniors and seniors take to evaluate their readiness for college. Taking the ACT is required for admission to most four year schools. If you are a junior in high school, thinking about attending a four year college, and have not yet taken the ACT, you are strongly encouraged to do so. See more reasons for taking the ACT here.  Testing sometime during the winter or spring of junior year and/or whatever fits your activity schedule the best is recommended. Testing dates and registration deadlines for this school year are listed below. You may register for the test by going online to www.act.org (some form of electronic payment will be required).  See below for test dates, information on preparing for the ACT, and other commonly asked questions.

Tips For Taking ACT Tests

  • Check your calculator – Be sure your calculator is permitted for use during the Math section; visit actstudent.org to find out if your calculator is allowed
  • Make sure you have your ticket – If you don’t have your ticket yet, sign in to your ACT Web account and print your ticket now.  If you wait until test day, you could experience delays if there is heavy server traffic or if you have trouble signing in
  • Make sure you have a valid photo ID – Check out the ID requirements on the Test Day Checklist at actstudent.org and make sure you bring your photo ID on test day
  • Make sure to bring your printed ticket and valid photo ID to the test center – Without borth your printed ticket and a valid photo ID, you won’t be admitted to test
  • Don’t bring your cell phone into the test center – If your cell phone goes off during the test or if you are caught using it at any time during testing – even during breaks – you will be dismissed and your test will not be scored
