All college-bound seniors should take the ACT in October and/or December.  Additionally, many Arkansas colleges and universities require the ACT to be taken in early fall to qualify for institutional scholarships.

February is the last national ACT exam that the Arkansas Department of Higher Education guarantees to accept in consideration for the Arkansas Academic Challenge Scholarship.  Remember that Arkansas is prone to winter weather, therefore the February exam is sometimes canceled due to snow or ice.  

Seniors who receive free or reduced lunches qualify for a voucher for a free ACT exam, which waives the $46 ACT exam fee and provides free access to online ACT preparation. Students should see Mrs. Rhea in the guidance office to request a voucher.  Students may use a maximum of two vouchers. Vouchers are limited and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be available after Labor Day.


All juniors will have the opportunity to take a free ACT exam in early March. Juniors who qualify for free or reduced lunch vouchers may request a voucher for the June or July exams, pending voucher availability.
