On April 3, 2018, all 11th grade students will take the ACT test, a college entrance exam. The test is part of State testing for accountability purposes. To help students prepare for the test, we have a couple of different resources to share with you.
Many high school students and families are thinking ahead to preparation for the ACT, the nation’s most popular college entrance exam. All LPS students take the ACT exam, at no cost, as a junior in high school as part of statewide testing. Students can also pay a fee (or see their high school counselor to apply for a fee waiver) to take the test additional times if they choose.
