Pre-ACT at BHS

The Pre-ACT, a practice test for the ACT, will be offered to any interested juniors on Saturday November 19, 2016 at Burlington High School. The ACT is a college entrance examination that is an alternative to the SAT and is growing in popularity among Burlington High School students. Most colleges require either the ACT or the SAT and do not show preference to one or the other. This Pre-ACT exam offers your son/daughter an opportunity to take a practice test prior to taking the American College Test (ACT) in their junior or senior year. Please visit for more detailed information.

Registration information for the Pre-ACT was mailed home to all parents/guardians of juniors the week of October 24th. In order to register for the Pre-ACT, your son/daughter must complete the form that was mailed home and submit the form with a $32.00 fee to the Guidance Secretary. (Additional forms can be picked up in the guidance suite.)

The regular registration period ends Monday, November 7th at the close of school.  If your son/daughter misses the registration period, he/she may check with the Guidance Secretary to see if there are available test booklets and space to accommodate a late registration.  There will be an additional charge of $5.00 ($37.00 total) after November 7th.   

On Saturday morning, November 19th your son/daughter should arrive to school by 7:45 a.m. and testing will begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. Room assignments will be publicized prior to testing.  Your son/daughter should bring two sharpened #2 pencils and an approved calculator.
