• What Is The ACT?

    The ACT is a national college admissions examination that consists of subject area tests in: 
    English, Math, Science, and Reading.

    The ACT Plus Writing includes the four subject area tests plus a 40-minute Writing Test.

    ACT results are accepted by all four-year colleges and universities in the US.

    The ACT includes 215 multiple-choice questions and takes approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes to complete, including a short break (or just over four hours if you are taking the ACT Plus Writing). Actual testing time is 2 hours and 55 minutes (plus 40 minutes if you are taking the ACT Plus Writing).

    The State of Minnesota now requires all schools to offer students in grades 11 and 12 an opportunity to participate in a nationally recognized college entrance exam on a a school day.  Students may take advantage of this opportunity once as a student at Albany Area Schools.  The ACT will be offered on February 28th, 2018. 

    The basic registration fee includes score reports for up to four college choices.  If you do not list college choices, you would later be required to pay a fee of $12.00 per college.
