Spots Available: ACT PREP at CMHS

ACT Prep

We still have several spots in the ACT prep course, and students still have time to take all five courses: English, math (geometry and algebra), reading, and science.  The classes culminate with a full-length practice test Saturday, March 10, and a follow-up class on the 14th to assess final skills to study before the test.  Cost is $30, which is just $5 per session.  Courses are the weeks of February 27 and March 6 from 4-4:45 with geometry and algebra on Tuesdays, reading and science on Wednesdays, and English on Thursdays.  Students select the days they attend.  Students may register in C-6 with Mrs. McGuire or through PaySchools until Monday, February 26.




The PreACT will be administered at Caddo Parish Magnet High School on March 20th to any sophomore students who wish to take it.  The PreACT gives students the opportunity to experience a structured, timed test environment with ACT test-quality questions.  Taking the PreACT will help sophomore students get comfortable with the ACT test, understand how they’re doing in core subjects, identify areas where additional support may be necessary, and explore career possibilities.  Additionally, the PreACT will predict student performance on the ACT.  PreACT scores may be used to meet Dual Enrollment criteria.*

The cost of the PreACT test is $12.  Students may submit their registration form and $12 fee to Ms. Moore in the Counselor’s Complex beginning Thursday, February 1.  The deadline to register and pay is March 2.  All sophomore students are highly encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity!  For more information on the benefits of taking the PreACT, check out Why take PreACT?

*The acceptance of PreACT scores is at the discretion of the post-secondary institutions.

PSAT Results

Sophomores and juniors who took the PSAT/NMSQT received their paper score reports through their English classes last week.  According to CollegeBoard, freshmen who took the PSAT/9 may not receive their paper score reports until as late as mid-January. There are two ways freshmen can receive their PSAT/9 scores:

  • Wait on the paper score reports that CMHS will receive
  • Log in or create an account on College Board and view their scores
    1. If the student provided a valid email at the time of testing, they should have received an email stating how they can login to view their scores—check spam or junk mailboxes.

If you run into problems, you can contact CollegeBoard at the following number and they should be able to guide you through the login process:  866-433-7728
