Why do you want to take the ACT?

  • Completion of this test is a graduation requirement for Nevada High School students. 

  • The ACT is an exam accepted by all colleges and universities to make admissions decisions - the better you do the more options you have.

  • There are many scholarships offered based on ACT scores - the better you do, the more scholarship options and the higher their value.

  • Normally it costs $67 to take the ACT with the writing section.  On February 23rd, there is no cost to our Douglas High School juniors.
