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.
