This is a great opportunity to take an important assessment in a convenient and familiar environment. The ACT can be used for a variety of things including college admission decisions for four-year universities, English and Math placement at some local community colleges, and can even help meet graduation requirements for state testing.

To “sign up,” please pay $59.00 to Ms. Patty in the main office no later than Wednesday, January 15th. To use the online InTouch payment system please call the high school office at 509-565-3200.

Students will need to check in to the small gym no later than 7:55 a.m. on the morning of February 25th and should expect to be there until approximately 12:30-1:00 p.m. Students can either bring their own lunch or we can get lunch for them from our cafeteria. Students will stay and eat in the testing area.

Per the ACT rules, only 10th, 11th and 12th graders are eligible to take the test. Please bring a calculator and let us know if you have any questions. We strongly encourage you to take some free practice tests at:
