All sophomores will take the ACT Aspire Test during the fall semester.

ACT Aspire Test has now taken the place of the ACT Plan test.  It still serves as the midpoint measure of academic progress in ACT’s College and Career Readiness System.

ACT Aspire helps 10th graders build a solid foundation for future academic and career success and provides information needed to address school districts’ high-priority issues. It is a comprehensive guidance resource that helps students measure their current academic development, explore career/training options, and make plans for the remaining years of high school and beyond.

Whether students are college-bound or plan to enter the workforce directly after high school, ACT Aspire can help all students.
