The State Board of Education is required by General Statute §115C-174.11 (c)(4), to plan for and require the administration of the ACT test to all public school students who are enrolled in the eleventh grade for the first time. Your student will take the statewide ACT free of charge on March 8, 2023 or March 9, 2023 at Panther Creek HS.
The ACT is part of North Carolina’s school accountability program. In addition, the ACT results may be used at the high school level to identify students who need assistance with certain subject areas or academic skills, to evaluate effectiveness of instruction, and to adjust curriculum to improve instruction. Colleges use ACT scores for admissions decisions, course placement, academic advising, and loans and scholarships. Students participating in the statewide ACT administration can select for free up to four colleges (or other reporting agencies) to receive their ACT scores.
Students who have taken either the SAT or the ACT before March 1, 2022 and have scores that meet the college readiness benchmark standards, do not have to participate in the statewide ACT administration. However, it is the students’ responsibility to notify the school that they do not wish to participate in the ACT.

Students may not combine test scores from prior, separate administrations to meet college readiness benchmark scores. All college readiness benchmark scores must be attained during the same test administration.
