Strategic Direction

New Vision. Aligned Work. Delivering Impact.

Our Vision

By 2032, ACT will empower 20.2 million more learners to exit high school ready for postsecondary and work opportunities. 

ACT will be the leader in providing insights on the skills, behaviors, knowledge, and navigation needed for life after high school and will serve as a trusted collaborator to institutions and families in helping learners launch into postsecondary education and workplace success. ACT will address pressing inequities by helping to ensure all students exit high school ready for and connected to postsecondary and work opportunities. 

Strategic Pillars 

ACT is building superior, responsive assessments and delivery platforms that will position ACT and our customers and stakeholders to have significant impact on our education and workforce ecosystem.

ACT is shifting from data provider to insights ally for learners and organizations. Holistic analytics and insight reporting will empower better decisions and create opportunities for success.

ACT is amplifying learners’ connections and access to compelling postsecondary and work opportunities. We are enhancing and aligning the PreACT and ACT tests to reflect redefined readiness, bringing new products to market to meet unmet needs, and providing more value to learners, families, and educators.

ACT is redefining readiness to capture the skills, behaviors, knowledge, and navigation that matter now in both postsecondary and career pursuits. We are strengthening ACT’s thought leadership to marshal support for redefined readiness nationwide.

ACT will accelerate the adoption and use of our robust suite of solutions for the K-12, postsecondary, and workforce ecosystem. We will collaborate with others to continue product innovation.
