Huntington Learning Center - ACT Practice Tests
On February 28, 2023, all Lakota East Juniors will take a live ACT test during the school day. This is an official test that students can, if they wish, submit on their college applications. Even though some colleges and universities are operating under a “test optional” policy for the time being, they still consider this score to be very important in their admissions decision. In addition, most schools still tie this score to merit scholarship opportunities and direct admission into some college programs. This is an opportunity for your student to enhance their college application by submitting their score.
In order to help our Juniors to better prepare for the test, Lakota East High School and Huntington Learning Center have teamed up to offer an ACT Practice Test to be held at the Lakota East Campus Saturday, January 14, 2023.
It is encouraged that every Junior who is taking a live ACT this school year sit for this test. It is also a great opportunity for sophomores to get their first look at the test.
Testing begins at 8:00 am. Students should arrive at 7:30 am in order to complete the sign-in process prior to the start of the test. The testing will be held in the Lakota East Community Room. Your son/daughter will be taking a retired ACT exam under test-like conditions. The test will take approximately 4-hours.
The cost is $40.00. Due to the size limitations of the Community Room, there are a maximum of 90 seats available for the practice test. Please register early to be sure you have a seat.
