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. A fee is required if students take it again.
