College Test Day Oct. 10, 2018 -10th grade/PreACT

College Testing Day is October 10, 2018; the day our sophomore class will take the PreACT.  The PreACT simulates the ACT testing experience within a shorter test window on all four ACT test subjects: English, math, reading and science.  Results predict future success on the ACT test, and provide current achievement and projected future ACT test scores on the familiar 1-36 ACT score scale.
The PreACT provides 10th grade students the opportunity to complete the ACT Interest Inventory which results provide students with a personalized view of college and career possibilities—based on their answers to the ACT Interest Inventory—which can help them start thinking about career paths and areas of interest with college and career alignment. 
Taking the PreACT on College Testing Day will help our sophomores get comfortable with the testing experience and understand how they’re doing in core subjects. It also helps parents and educators identify areas where additional support might be necessary. Report data can help guide action plans for students to increase success in high school courses as well as on the actual ACT they will take in their junior and/or senior year.
Sophomores: PreACT testing begins promptly @ 8:30am. Sophomores should arrive with #2 pencils and scientific calculators on campus no later than 8:20 and go directly to their assigned classroom. Classroom assignments will be emailed, and will also be posted on campus.    
Thanks to the PVHS Booster Club & PVHS PTSA for generously donating the fees for the PreACT for the entire sophomore class!  Most of all, many thanks to our parents and the community that continues to support our Peninsula Education Foundation. The College & Career Center is funded entirely by the PEF; we are grateful the CCC is able to offer resources and opportunities for the benefit of our students and families. Thanks and Go Sea Kings!
