The ACT is a test that may be used for college admission. The ACT test battery consists of four subjects: English, mathematics, reading and natural sciences. An optional 30 minute writing component is available to students who wish to take it. Students are encouraged to register for the writing component as most colleges now require it. Some students prefer the ACT since they feel it allows them to demonstrate their ability in reading and science. There is also a career interest inventory offered as part of the registration form. Registration forms are available in the House Offices. Mailing in the registration form and registration fee for the test are the student’s responsibility. You may also register online at www.actstudent.org.
Both the SAT & ACT programs offer a fee waiver to families who meet income eligibility requirements. A student should contact his/her guidance counselor for more information.
