As we work to make sure every student is prepared for graduation and life after high school, we want to make sure that every family has as much college and career information available to them as possible. We want to make sure we keep our families informed and up to date with the most current information. In this email, we have attached information about ACT’s new learning tool for students who are preparing to take the ACT Test. The new learning tool is called ACT Academy. I have provided information about ACT Academy and a link to ACT Academy in the next paragraphs. This information has been provided by ACT Academy. This is a great resource to help all of our students to prepare for the ACT Test. Please remember that students can use Khan Academy to prepare for the SAT Test. I have provided the link to Khan Academy at the bottom of this message.
ACT has just launched ACT® Academy™, a free online learning tool and test practice program designed to help students master the skills they need to improve their ACT scores and succeed in college and career.
ACT Academy will help students improve their college and career readiness by providing them with video lessons, interactive practice questions, full-length practice tests, educational games and other materials targeted to their academic needs. Each student will receive their own personalized study plan based on their scores from the ACT® test, PreACT®, official ACT practice tests, or diagnostics within ACT Academy.
ACT Academy will provide students with engaging content and materials developed by ACT, the Khan Academy, NASA, PBS and other learning organizations in one convenient place. All of the content will be sorted by efficacy, so students receive the resources that have been proven to be most effective for each skill. It will include the high-quality materials of ACT’s OpenEd, the leading online resource library for K-12 teachers.
ACT Academy will be compatible with all devices and will allow students to work on building their skills anytime, anywhere they have internet access. Parents, teachers, and counselors can also use ACT Academy to help students study and learn.
One unique advantage ACT Academy will provide students is the ability to drill down and pinpoint building-block skills they have missed. Every user will have access to thousands of ACT resources, as well as ACT’s proven tips and strategies.

SAT/ ACT Fee Waiver Request Information
Any student who qualifies for free/ reduced textbook rental at AHS is eligible to receive a fee waiver to take the SAT or ACT exam. Each testing agency will allow up to 2 total waivers during 9th - 12th grade (so you could take each test twice). A waiver code can only be used once per registration so you will need to request a new one each time you want to test. Be mindful of registration deadlines! IF YOU DO NOT TEST AFTER REGISTERING THE WAIVER CANNOT BE REUSED.
The waiver will cover the complete cost of a full exam and scores sent to 4 colleges or universities.
YOU WILL SIGN UP FOR THE TEST YOURSELF AT ONE OF THE REGISTRATION SITES BELOW.
You will receive a waiver code to enter in the payment section.
GO TO THIS LINK TO SUBMIT YOUR FEE WAIVER REQUEST:
AFTER YOU MAKE THIS REQUEST, YOUR COUNSELOR WILL VERIFY YOUR LUNCH STATUS AND COMPLETE THE WAIVER FORM. IT WILL TYPICALLY BE AVAILABLE FOR PICKUP WITHIN 48 HRS OF YOUR REQUEST. Your counselor may also send you a reminder to your school email that the waiver is ready for pick up.
Stop in the counselor office to pick up your waiver after that time frame. Any waivers requested but not picked up within 1 week of the request will be cancelled and put back in the available list for other students.
