ACT Fees and Waivers

The cost of the regular (no writing) version of the ACT test is $39.50. The ACT Plus Writing test is $56.50. If you qualify for the Free/Reduced Lunch program you are also eligible to receive two fee waivers for the ACT No Writing during your 11th and 12th years. This means 2 total, so you may want to use one during the junior year and one during the senior year. See Mrs. Manning for details.

Studying for the ACT will improve your score! There are free study materials in the guidance office for students.

There is a great resource online for ACT prep;

This website is produced/funded by the U.S. Army, but is not affilated with the armed services in any other way. It is strictly for test prep. Student must make an account to use the site, but very little information is required to register. The ACT prep section includes several practice tests and interactive flashcards.
