ACT Test

The next ACT test date is scheduled for April 4, 2020 with a registration deadline of February 28th.  (Late Fee registration from February 28th – March 13th) This is the only ACT test date that will be held at Assumption High School for 2020.  I have attached the ACT registration flyer, giving you instructions on how to register, as well as the preparation booklet. Students are welcome to pick up a hard copy of these materials in Student Services.  JUNIORS, please remember, if you have not already done so, you are strongly encouraged to take the ACT by the end of your junior year. 

Don’t forget about the ACT Club we have available for you here at Assumption:

  • ACT: Why not build your ACT knowledge, confidence, and understanding a little bit each week instead of cramming right before the test? ACT club takes only twenty minutes, and we finish so early, you won’t even have to miss practice! Testing is timed, and students are assisted in improving their testing speed. When time is up, either Mrs. Smyth, Mrs. Wallace, or Mrs. Eliopulos is available to answer questions and help students analyze their answers. ACT club meets TUESDAYS from 2:55 to 3:20. It is important to show up to ACT Club as frequently as possible before you take the ACT test.
