PreACT Given to All 10th Graders


Important Information Regarding the PreACT:

The PreACT test provides students with practice for the ACT and measures of progress towards college readiness.  The state pays for this and requires all 10th graders to test.  This year, the PreACT will be given at Princeton Middle/High School on Tuesday, November 17th for students in Cohort A and on Thursday, November 19th for students in Cohort B.  Students who have opted to remain virtual will need to make arrangements, and provide their own transportation, to attend one of these test dates.  Upon arrival, virtual students will be expected to have their temperatures checked, wear face masks, enter the building at the high school entrance, and report upstairs for testing.       

The PreACT is approximately 4 hours long.  Testing will begin promptly at 8:05, and projected to end around 12:00 pm.  Once the test has ended, students will be permitted to leave school as long as they have transportation.  For those students who utilize the bus and do not have transportation to leave early, they will attend the remainder of their classes on campus.  Students who would like to take practice Pre-ACT tests or review sample questions may do so at
