    • Sign out for any time of day before you leave campus for an appointment.

  • Sophomores:  find out how you did on the practice ACT exam that you took on Super Wednesday! There will be a Scores Review Session on Monday, November 16th at 6:30 pm in the theater.  Students will only be able to receive their scores at this session- they will not be handed out during the school day- so make sure to attend!  One of The Princeton Review’s top instructors will go over how the test is scored, the differences between the SAT and the ACT, how scores factor into college admissions, and strategies on how to improve your ACT Score.
