2022-2023 PreACT and PSAT
All sophomores will take the PreACT on October 19th as part of North Carolina’s college readiness initiative. There is no need to pre-register or sign up. All 10th grade students take the PreACT for free. Information/details will be shared with students in class prior to 10/19.
The Pre-ACT is a standardized, curriculum-based, multiple-choice achievement test that includes four areas: English, mathematics, reading and science, reported on the same scale as the ACT. Results are used by high schools for advising and counseling students, by WCPSS for evaluating instructional effectiveness and planning curriculum, for predicting which students are on track to be ready for college, and as a source of data to help counselors, students and parents make appropriate course placement decisions.
Although all math problems on the PreACT can be solved without a calculator, students wishing to use an ACT approved calculator should bring their own; WFHS will not provide calculators. (Please refer to the ACT Calculator Policy.)
Registration has closed for the 2022-2023 PSAT, and all materials have been ordered. Students who registered will receive testing room information the week of testing.
Note: The PSAT/NMSQT is an optional test; no student is required to take it.
