If you suspect that your child is eligible, please have them contact their school counselor.

Students who have registered and paid for the June test will be contacted by ACT with directions on how to choose a different testing location or test date. Students who have questions regarding this should contact ACT directly.

AP Testing will still be taking place in May. However, students will be testing online via the College Board's online testing system. Students in AP courses should look for more information from Mr. Heidtke sent via email.
