ACT prep


The ACT is a national college admissions examination. Most colleges have required the submission of ACT scores in order to be accepted into their institution.

Lake Central freshmen, sophomores and juniors will be taking the ACT and ASPIRE tests on Tuesday, April 28.

“If a student knows how to get into their RDS [account] to check their grades, they can do a full test prep feature on their Naviance. All they have to do is click on their Naviance link and go into their Naviance, and they will see the very first thing in the upper left hand corner. It says, ‘Prep Me.’ Click on that Prep Me, and it will take them into practice tests for the ACT,” Mrs. Laurel Bankroff, Guidance, said.

In addition, there are other ways for students to prepare for these tests. Students can take practice tests online, and they can take ACT prep classes. Students can also look over previous notes from past core classes. The ACT is a timed test, so students can work on pacing themselves too.

“I’m taking practice tests on Naviance. I’m taking online tests, and I’m also involved in a prep class. I’ll get a lot of sleep the night before and eat a good breakfast,” Lindsey Gercken (11) said.

Senior students will not be administered the tests. They are expected to come to school and choose from three academic activities. These activities include college visits, career placement or credit recovery lab and graduation prep.
