The ACT (ACT Website) is one of America's most widely accepted college entrance exams. It assesses high school students' general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work.

  • The multiple-choice tests cover four skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science.
  • The Writing Test, which is optional, measures skills in planning and writing a short essay.

Students wishing to take the ACT will need to visit the ACT website in order to register (register for the ACT). The ACT test is given at various high schools throughout the local area on designated national test dates.
