Eaglecrest CEEB School Code: 060-066
Each year, students take a standardized test to help prepare them for the ACT test (SAT test is optional) they will take during their Junior and Senior years. Standardized tests scores are used in the application process to most colleges and universities.
Freshman and sophomores will take the ACT Aspire test in the fall. The ACT Aspire lays the foundation to how the ACT test will be structured. Students will also receive potential career interests based off the interest profiler. Test scores are also used by department coordinators for proper placement in classes.
Juniors will take the practice ACT exam in the fall. Students can use the results to focus on preparing for specific sections of the ACT exam. It is a practice exam and will not be used in the college admission process. This test is used to help students prepare for the State mandated ACT test in April.
