ACT Testing Dates for the 2017-2018 School Year

Northwest High School offers the ACT in October, December, April, & June. Since we have no control over who we test we recommend students register early in order to secure a spot at the Northwest site. While students may take the test as many times as they wish, we recommend that our students take the test in the spring of their junior year and fall of their senior year. When you register for the test you will need the following codes:

  2. Eat a good healthy breakfast and lunch. Testing will take up to 3 ½ hours.
  3. If you have 2 tests in one day, be sure to pack a lunch! There will be limited time between the tests.
  4. BRING A SNACK for break time. It needs to be kept in your book bag on the floor during testing. This should be a quick and easy snack….break is only 10 minutes.
  5. Wear comfortable, school appropriate clothing. 
  6. Afternoon testing will go beyond the school day. Be sure to arrange transportation and let coaches and after school activities advisors know that you will be late on testing day.
  7. You must remain in the testing room until all testing is complete. Be sure to use time wisely and DO NOT RUSH.
