We are getting closer to ACT time! On Tuesday, April 12th all CHS, HHS, and Access to Success Junior students will take the ACT at the Lewis and Clark Fairgrounds and PAL students will test at PAL (unless otherwise arranged due to testing accommodations).
Students will pre-register for the ACT online during the school day. If your student misses this opportunity during the school day, they can complete it at home on their own and they can obtain directions for this at their school. Students will simply be able to make an ACT account, log in, and answer basic questions about their academics and where they would like (free) test scores sent. It is the expectation that each student completes this pre-registration process prior to April 12.
The Prep Booklet online –Your student can print this off and use it to help prepare.
The Information for Examinees website has an online practice test that your student could take.
Additional resources for ACT test prep can be found on the below sites:

Advanced Placement (AP) courses offer students the opportunity to get a head start on college while in the supportive environment of a high school classroom. Students can earn college credit or placement by taking the AP exam at the end of the school year, while at the same time achieving a higher level of learning.
Your AP scores could earn you college credit or advanced placement (meaning you could skip certain courses in college). Use this tool to find colleges that offer credit or placement for AP scores. View the AP Credit Policy here.
Taking an AP exam is optional, but we encourage students to consider the opportunity.
If you have any questions regarding AP Exam registration and payment, please contact Helena High’s AP Coordinator: Ellaina Staldine,406-324-2224, email@example.com
More information regarding testing dates, locations and expectations are communicated to students as the AP Exam date nears.
