ACT Testing for Juniors

Posted on: February 6, 2018

Finneytown High School will be giving the State ACT test, without writing, to all juniors on Tuesday, February 27, 2018. Junior students need to arrive to school by 8:00 AM where they will be checked in and directed to their testing location.  The test will take approximately 4-5 hours and students will be dismissed to go home at the end of the exam. They will have the option to pick up a packed lunch from the cafeteria.

The ACT test is one of two national college entrance exams. It is accepted and valued by all universities and colleges in the United States. The ACT is based on what students learn in high school and provides personalized information about their strengths for education and career planning. In addition, the state of Ohio has legislation requiring all juniors to take a college entrance exam.
In preparation for test day 11th graders should bring:
·         A photo ID
·         Sharpened #2 wooden pencils, good erasers
·         Calculator
·         Dress in layers to adjust for different temperatures in the testing environment
Please be aware that this is a FREE official ACT test that can be used for college applications. When completing their demographic information at school, they will be given the option to send these scores, free of charge, to 4 colleges. Please talk to your student about where they would like to send their test scores. If they do not choose colleges during registration it will cost $12.00 per college to send these ACT scores.
In order to provide the best testing environment for this college entrance exam:
Grades 9, 10 and 12 will NOT need to report to school on February 27
Grades 6-8 WILL report for a regular school day.
