ACT Testing
 
All four-year schools in Wisconsin and Minnesota require an ACT test score for admission.  Most two-year schools will use your ACT score for admission purposes, but they may also require an ACCUPLACER test score for program placement.  All juniors will take the ACT + Writing free of charge in the spring with their classmates during the school day. Some students may wish to take the ACT an additional time to improve their scores.  Students wishing to take the ACT outside of school should visit www.actstudent.org
Students needing a fee waiver should see Mrs. Schulte to see if they qualify.
