ACT Tuesday, Feb. 25th!

The Mississippi Department of Education is paying for juniors to take the ACT® test at school, during the school day, on Tuesday, Feb. 25th to assist students as they prepare for their future after high school. There is no cost to you for this administration.

Benefits of Taking the ACT!

The ACT includes multiple-choice tests in English, mathematics, reading, and science. It matches well with the state’s education standards, measures what is learned in high school, and will provide a gauge of academic readiness for college classes.
