A Note from the Office
***PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO SUMMER SCHOOL DURING THE SUMMER OF 2019***
Juniors to Take ACT on February 20
All juniors will take the ACT on Wednesday, February 20th.  Juniors will report to the high school no later than 8:25 am with photo ID, calculator, pencils, and fully charged computers.  Once testing is completed, students will be dismissed for the remainder of the day.  Juniors will not attend any classes on that day (including 1st period).  Polaris students will not report to Polaris on that day.  If students test with accommodations they will be given additional information about those accommodations.  The test will take approximately 3.5 hours.  Students will be given a form with pertinent information on Monday, February 18th.  This form will provide instructions on how to create an ACT web account and input pertinent information into that account.  It is very important that students do this by March 1st.  This will allow students to send their ACT scores to colleges for this administration.  
ACT Practice Tests
There are a number of resources to help examinees prepare to take the ACT, including the opportunity to take a practice test, and use free personalized resources with ACT®  Academy™.
