Testing

ACT Exam 

The American College Test is a standardized test that measures a student’s skills in five core areas: English, math, reading, science, and writing. Students in grades 11 and 12 take the ACT so that they can submit their scores to colleges as part of the college application process.  If your student is registered for a CIS class, the ACT score may also be required to earn college credit.
