ACT Testing

Scroll down to see ACT Test Prep websites and classes.

ACT (American College Testing) – a national college admissions examination that consists of subject area tests in English, mathematics, reading, and science. Most students take the ACT during their junior or senior year of high school, and colleges and universities use the ACT to make admission decisions.

This test is offered free to all 11th graders at CCHS each Spring. During 2022-2023 school year, the ACT test will be offered at CCHS on March 7th.

A fee is required if students take it again. Students can take the ACT test up to 12 times, however research shows that taking the test more then three times is not likely to help the student.

Receiving and Sending your ACT scores

ACT Score Reports are mailed up to 8 weeks after test documents are received by ACT to the address entered in the non-test information. You will also be able to see your scores in the MyAct account you created when you pre-registered for the test. ACT runs test documents in batches and there is no guarantee that all Corner Canyon students’ test documents are run in the same batch. Score reports are sent directly from ACT.

You can request to have your test scores sent to colleges/universities through your MyAct account. Click here for more information.

The April ACT is a Test Information Release (TIR) Month!

It’s no secret, most students improve their scores when they take the ACT more than once. Three times a year, ACT offers students a chance to purchase their TIR: the student’s test form questions, the correct answers, and the answers the student provided. This is a great training resource for students to improve their scores and the opportunities that can come along with it.

The tests are fairly similar in the types of questions, although the SAT is slightly longer and doesn’t include a science section. Other differences between the tests include:
1. The SAT focuses more on vocabulary and general reasoning.
2. The math section of the ACT is more advanced than the SAT.
