The PreACT simulates the ACT testing experience within a shorter test window on all four ACT test subjects: English, math, reading, and science. (act.org) Our school’s mission is to prepare every student for college acceptance. We know that an impressive ACT score can save our students and their families thousands of dollars as the student will become eligible for scholarships, grants, and other opportunities that are often untapped. Please discuss with your student the importance of this free practice test. Emphasize how taking this practice test seriously will help them and the school measure their knowledge of content to become better students. I know that our students are more than capable of excelling beyond the district and state averages and am determined to provide opportunities like this for every student to demonstrate it.
