ACT Opportunity

The Snohomish School District will be offering the ACT (American College Test) free of charge for all high school juniors. Glacier Peak High school juniors will take the ACT test on Tuesday, February 27,during the school day. This is an amazing opportunity for students to take a college entrance exam at no cost to families and for our schools to collect data that will help improve student learning. As a district, offering free ACT reflects our commitment to eliminating barriers to career and college readiness. Students testing at their high school will be registered by the district office. Therefore, you do not need to do anything to register your student for ACT testing. Students who take the ACT outside the district-hosted testing will need to follow the ACT national testing process at www.act.org.

The ACT is a leading U.S. college admissions test and includes tests in science, writing, reading, math and English. It is a curriculum-based educational and career planning tool that assesses students’ academic readiness for college. It includes an interest inventory that provides students with valuable information for career and educational planning, as well as a student profile section that provides a comprehensive profile of an examinee’s work in high school and their future. To learn more about ACT, please visit www.act.org.

If your student has not checked out a school laptop, please have them see the Library to get a laptop checked out by February 16. Students will need a school laptop to be able to take the test on February 27.
