Preparing for the ACT

The ACT® 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 skill in planning and writing a short essay.

Students are encouraged to take the ACT® test at least once during their junior year and again in the early fall of their senior year in time to meet college and scholarship application deadlines. Itineris juniors will take the state-wide ACT in March, while seniors will take the nation-wide ACT in October, completing registration in Connect Time.

ACT® encourages online registration - see link below. When registering, students will be asked to identify their high school by code. The code for Itineris Early College High School is 450-452. Students will also be asked to select colleges/universities that they would like their scores sent to. Students are encouraged to send scores to SLCC, as ACT scores may be used instead of SLCC Placement Test scores to satisfy course prerequisites.

Below are several websites in which students may take practice ACT questions/tests and read through general tips on how to prepare for this college entrance exam. There are also ACT preparation apps available for download through the Apple Store or Android Market.

AP (Advanced Placement)

The AP Program offers more than 30 courses across multiple subjects. AP Courses are developed by a committee of college faculty and AP teachers to ensure that the information, skills, and assignments found in the corresponding college course are taught in the high school AP class. These are rigorous courses that test students’ ability to perform at a college level. AP exams are standardized and given throughout the Nation each May. A student must pass an AP exam (generally with a 3 or higher depending on the college a student plans to attend) in order to receive college credit.

Advanced Placement Testing Information – Alternate test dates are subject to College Board regulations and may be subject to additional fees. All alternate tests must be approved by the school’s AP Coordinator, Ms. Nisson. To learn more about AP Testing visit The American College Board.
