Their Journey. Many Paths.

Striving for Fairness by Breaking Down Barriers to Access

By breaking down barriers to access, ACT® District Testing supports you in driving equity and making a profound impact in the community—opening doors to college, scholarships, and financial aid for every student.

Be the Change: Turn Vision into Action

Ensure that opportunity and access, as well as actionable information and reporting, are available to all students so they can take control of their outcomes and chart their best course toward college and career readiness.  

The Path to College and Career Success Starts Early

Success doesn’t happen in a year. It happens year after year. That’s why ACT offers a continuum of sequential assessments that prepares your students for a lifetime of success—in college and beyond. The tests in the ACT Assessment System have a common score scale, making it easy to track performance across tests, measure growth, and identify areas where students need work.
