What Your Colleagues Are Saying
“The thing I like about ACT: At our school we don’t focus a lot on scores—we focus a lot more on benchmarks because we can tell what that means.”

“Students may be missing out on more scholarship opportunities—and, possibly, college altogether—by not taking the ACT.”
