ACT Scores and Senior Year

Seniors who are not pleased with their ACT scores might want to consider retaking the ACT test. Average composite score is 21 on a scale from 1 to 36. Universities use the ACT as a placement test for writing and math classes. Go to act.org for cost, registration and test dates and locations. Students receive higher scores if they take the time to take some free ACT prep tests.
I do have copies of every student's ACT test results.
