The ACT and the SAT tests attempt to measure college readiness and predict future academic success. After COVID-19, many schools suspended their required use in admission decisions (referred to as Test Optional, meaning it is optional to send scores for admission consideration) and the future of these standardized tests remains unclear. However, scores can still be used to place students in appropriate college courses and many scholarships require minimum test scores! The ACT is offered at our school in the Spring for all juniors because it is a graduation requirement. Please keep the score report from this exam for use during senior year!
