HCHS Junior Opportunity: ACT Prep workshop on January 18, 2023 at Spearville High School, to help prepare for the state paid ACT in March. Cost will be $10 per student. Registration will be sent out before Christmas break via parent & student email.

Juniors and Seniors need to be concerned with taking the ACT.  Board of Regent schools use the ACT benchmark scores as entrance requirements (http://www.kansasregents.org/).  I still recommend students to take the ACT even if they aren't planning on going to one of the six BOR schools right out of high school (Emporia State University, Fort Hays State University, Kansas State University, Pittsburg State University, Wichita State University or the University of Kansas, because the ACT scores can be used in lieu of the Accuplacer Placement Test students must take to place into college level classes.  Also, some scholarships rely on student's ACT scores.  Below are links to ACT test dates and the ACT website to help answer any other questions you may have.
