ACT Testing Dates and Information
ACT Test
Students considering post-secondary education need to take either the ACT or SAT college entrance examination.  Check with your prospective post-secondary institution for information about which test they prefer, and their minimum scores required.

As part of our mission that COLLEGE AND CAREER READINESS IS NOT A DREAM, IT'S A PLAN, all Chargers are encouraged to take the ACT. A score of 24 or higher will guarantee acceptance into most area colleges and universities.  


The ACT currently costs $39.50 for the standard test. The ACT Plus Writing costs $56.50.  Fee waivers are available under certain circumstances and there are limitations. Please see a Memorial High School counselor for more information about fees.

ACT is committed to serving students with disabilities by providing reasonable accommodations appropriate to the student's diagnosis. For more information, contact the Memorial High School special services department, or the ACT directly.
