ACT INFO

All Students: The ACT is a college admissions exam covering the subjects of math, science, English and reading. While many colleges have gone to a test-optional model, wherein it isn’t required to take an ACT score to college, it is still necessary for many scholarships, course placement options freshman year, and as an avenue for admittance in case GPA is not strong. Any student can sign up to take this test by going to act.org and registering.
