Testing

  • ACT

    The ACT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. It is a multiple-choice, pencil-and-paper test covering four sections: English, math reading and science. The purpose of the ACT test is to measure a high school student's readiness for college, and provide colleges with one common data point that can be used to compare all applicants. College admissions officers will review standardized test scores alongside your high school GPA, the classes you took in high school, letters of recommendation from teachers or mentors, extracurricular activities, admissions interviews and personal essays.

    Most high school students take the ACT during the spring of their junior year or fall of their senior year. It is important to leave time to re-take the test if you need to raise your score before you apply to college.

    All ACT assessments will be administered at Lindbergh High School. When registering, you must enter test center code 214-230 to take the ACT at LHS.
