High school students are required to take the SAT or ACT in order to apply for college. Even though the majority of students apply for the test, the school does not pay for the cost of each test. However, this year the school is providing the junior class with a single ACT test without the essay portion.
The ACT will take place on Wednesday April 19 in the east cafeteria. Students are required to bring a photo ID (a license or school ID) and #2 pencils with them to the test. They are encouraged not to bring food or drinks and any electronic device.
It is important to know that the test begins at 8:15 and will not be available to any student who shows up late. If you choose not to take the test you must inform Mrs. Ramsey by Tuesday afternoon. In this case, you are still required to attend your classes or else you will be counted truant. If a student is absent, a makeup test will be offered on Wednesday May 3.
ACT prep books are available to students at places like Barnes and Noble or the public library. There are also tutoring sessions offered to students by WTAMU tutors. The next tutoring session will be held on Tuesday April 18 in the east cafeteria from 4 to 5 pm.
If you are a junior and have not yet finished filling out the ACT forms, meet with Mrs. Ramsey in 802 east before test day.
In order to apply to college, you must submit an ACT or SAT test score so it is important to start taking these tests early. If you are unsatisfied with your test scores you can retake the test, but you will be required to pay for the test yourself.
