when should my teen take the act?

Because the ACT is a curriculum-based test, it is recommended that students test early in their junior year. Those test results should show which areas may need improvement and allow time for additional study. Students who test early still have time to retake the test in order to meet college application deadlines in their senior year.

Every student should have the opportunity to go to college and have a successful career. By encouraging your student to take the ACT, you are taking a positive step toward college readiness.

ACT recommends making a "core" curriculum a priority for all students. The minimum core includes:

  • Four years of English
  • Three years of mathematics
  • Three years of science
  • Three years of social studies 

Encourage your student to check out ACT's Question of the Day, to download the free booklet Preparing for the ACT, or to practice test questions online.
