PreACT Test - October 5, 2021
On October 5, 2021 all 9th and 10th grade students will take the PreACT test. This is a test that allows students to see what taking the ACT is like. It gives them a score and also predicts what they would potentially make on the ACT. It provides a great way to study for the ACT because once the school receives the student score reports, students will get a copy of their scores, the correct answers, and the test booklet. More information will be given out to students in the coming weeks regarding specific testing information for test day.

Why is your GPA important?
- College applications - you will need a certain GPA to be accepted for most colleges
- Scholarship applications - the higher your GPA, the more scholarships you will qualify for, which means more $$$ for your college education
- Internship/apprenticeship career tech programs - the higher your GPA, the more likely you are to be selected
- Job force - your GPA can often show employers if you are highly motivated and a hard worker
