The ACT is an achievement test, measuring what a student has learned in school. The ACT has up to 5 components: English, Mathematics, Reading, Science, and an optional Writing Test. The ACT® college readiness assessment is a curriculum- and standards-based educational and career planning tool that assesses students’ academic readiness for college.

The ACT is the capstone of our College and Career Readiness System. The test uses the same score scale as ACT Explore/ACT Plan and ACT Aspire, making the system an effective tool to monitor academic progress and student growth.

General Test-Taking Strategies for the ACT
The ACT contains multiple-choice tests in four areas: English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science. Each of these tests contains questions that offer either four or five answer choices from which you are to choose the correct, or best, answer. The following suggestions apply to all four tests: Pace yourself. Read the directions for each test carefully. Read each question carefully. Answer the easy questions first. 

Here are some helpful ACT Resources for students and families to better prepare and learn about the ACT.

ATTENDANCE PROCEDURES
High school students whose attendance falls below 90% in one semester will receive a percentage deduction by course.
