About the ACT
The ACT is a college and career readiness exam that covers four areas: English, science reasoning, math and reading. (No Writing Portion)
The exam is timed and takes three hours and 30 minutes to complete.
A composite score of a 21 (on a scale of 1-36) on the ACT can create more scholarship opportunities.
All MNPS juniors have the opportunity to sit for the ACT at no cost during the regular school day.
If you are working on raising your score, you can take the ACT more than once. Colleges or universities will take your highest composite score.
Free Test Prep Resources Found Here!
This form will come in handy when you are creating your ACT Account. Look for directions on how to access your Student Code after February 12th.
