The ACT test, started by the American College Testing Program, is a standardized pencil-and-paper test used as a college entrance exam. Colleges and universities use your ACT score, along with your GPA, extracurricular activities, and high school involvement to determine admission to their campus as a freshman. The ACT contains multiple-choice tests in four areas: English, mathematics, reading and science. ACT's writing test is optional and will not affect your composite score. Currently, Roseville Area High School offers the chance to take the ACT exam on a specific date in March or April for all Juniors.
The PSAT or Pre SAT is an optional test offered to RAHS Juniors in October. The PSAT is used to determine National Merit Scholars and is the gateway to thousands of dollars in potential scholarships. It’s an exceptional practice for the ACT, which all RAHS students will take in April of their Junior year for free. The PSAT cost is $22 but scholarships are available. Students should see their counselor for more information on the PSAT. Students register via Fee Pay on the RAHS website beginning in August.
