    • It is recommended that juniors take the ACT/SAT at least once in the spring of their 11th grade year.
    • The state of North Carolina, in conjunction with ACT, provides the ACT for all juniors in the spring of each year, free of charge and on a school day.
    • DHS juniors will take the ACT in April 2023.  
    • Once you receive your scores (6-8 weeks after testing), you can make a determination of whether that score will meet the criteria for the college you are most interested in or if you need to test again to try and improve your score.
    • You will need an ACT account to retest or to send scores to the colleges of your choice.  You will create your account after you get your score report with your ACT ID Profile number, if you take it at school for the first time. Register here!  Once you go to the registration site, scroll down and there is information on ACT accounts if you tested at your high school.

    Already taken the ACT test at your last high school? You already have an account! Log in to your ACT account using your ACT ID, which can be found on your score report.
