New ACT School Day Testing:  Tuesday, June 2, 2020, from 7:45 am to 11 am.  Must pre-register through Mrs. Hathhorn

Other Notes:  Due to Coronavirus, ACT has canceled the April 2020 Saturday testing date. ACT Saturday testing dates in the summer are currently scheduled to be June 13, 2020, and July 18, 2020.

Typically, the  December and April ACT testing dates (Saturday testing locations) are the only times when students have the opportunity to order the TRI which means resources come back to the student following testing at a small fee.  Resources include test questions, the student's answers and the answer key for that test. These materials can be helpful when studying for future ACT testing
