What is the ACT?

The ACT Assessment is a standardized, multiple-choice, college admission exam. It is accepted for admission by virtually all of the colleges and universities in the United States. ACT scores are also frequently used for course placement and scholarship eligibility. The test is administered seven times per year. The ACT takes approximately three and a half hours to complete. There are four sections you are tested on: English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science Reasoning.

When should Students take the ACT?

Students have traditionally taken the ACT in the spring of their junior year and, if necessary, again in the fall of their senior year. However, more and more students are choosing to take their first ACT earlier, such as during the fall of their junior year. This gives them more flexibility to retake the ACT one or more times.

How can students prepare for the ACT?

There are several activities that are available to students at the high school or on ACT's Website.

See the LHS Counseling Center - We have several resources to help prepare you to take the ACT.

Super Saturday - An opportunity to practice the actual test and receive tutoring in the varies subject areas.
