From our Student Services Department:
- Our 11th graders took the Practice ACT on Saturday, November 23. We had 104 students to show up and take the Practice ACT test in preparation for the real ACT test in February. We encourage students to begin to prepare/study for the ACT as this test is used for college admissions.
- ACT Parent Night is Thursday, December 12 at 6 pm. During this time, colleges will come to our campus and share information with students and parents to understand more about testing and college. Also, students who took the Practice ACT on November 23 will receive their scores. We invite all juniors and their families to hear this important information.
