Practice ACT Test

On Saturday, March 10th, Marist will offer a Practice ACT to interested juniors and sophomores. This is an actual retired ACT exam so it will give you an excellent idea of what you can expect on the real ACT. However, you will not be taking the writing portion.

Sign up for the practice test with Mrs. Gainer in the Guidance Office. The cost is $10.00 and money needs to be turned in when you sign up for the test. You will be unable to sign up without your payment. The test will start at 8:30 am and you should be done with testing and self-scoring by noon.  The deadline to sign up is Wednesday, February 21st.
