ACT Information

Here is a link to ACT resources.

Students under the age of 13 will need to request either on-line or by phone a registration packet from ACT. Students age 13 and over are able to sign up directly on-line. (Note: when filling out ACT forms, it is not necessary to complete all career information.) The ACT additional writing portion is not a mandatory requirement for PATH qualification.

Please be sure to check testing times and sites before completing registration. Testing sites and high school codes are not the same. Testing sites are the physical location and the high school code is where scores are sent.

If you would like student scores sent to PATH please include the code 3184 on the registration form in the space provided. If the code 3184 was not included during registration, students are still eligible for PATH by providing a copy to the PATH office.
