ACT & SAT Tests for Juniors

Three ACT test dates are available for HHS juniors taking the ACT 2nd semester. Students have two opportunities to take the ACT using a fee waiver. It is important that students register for a test day that will not interfere with other commitments such as sports, FFA, band, drama or work schedules. After a student registers for a test and the date must be changed, a fee must be paid to make the change. The ACT test is on Saturdays on the following dates: April 14th and June 9th.


On test day, the arrival time is 7:45 a.m. Students are to bring two #2 pencils, an approved calculator, a photo ID.  Student may begin preparing on their own for the ACT by visiting http://march2success.com . Idaho students have free access to the online ACT test prep course and may access that by logging into the ACT account they set up when they registered for the ACT.
