ACT Information

“American College Testing” Assessment
The ACT is a qualifying test required for admission to colleges and universities in Indiana and in many schools outside the state of Indiana. Juniors who wish to make early application to colleges should take the ACT in the spring of their junior year.

Students who are considering attending college are strongly encouraged to take the ACT or SAT in the spring of their junior year. They may then retake the tests if necessary during the fall of their senior year. Students may obtain a registration packet and student information bulletin (Preparing For The ACT Assessment) from the Elkhart High School West Guidance  Office and mail it before the registration deadline.
