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.
