  • Registration open for February ACT test

    Registration is now open for the Feb. 12 ACT achievement test. Students who wish to take the college admission and placement exam must register before Jan. 7.

    The ACT is a curriculum-based achievement exam. It tests what students have actually learned in school, not their aptitude for learning. The ACT also measures what students need to know to be ready for first year credit-bearing college courses based on ACT College Readiness Standards. Every student's results can be tied directly to these consistent standards.
