Preparing for college can be expensive. The ACT is a good value because it offers a college admissions test, college course placement, and a career planning component for one modest fee. And you can make yourself visible to colleges and scholarship agencies across the country by taking the ACT. It’s a complete package of services to help you get ready for life beyond high school.  In the state of Missouri, the ACT counts as an indicator of College & Career Readiness (CCR – Success Ready for MSIP6)”.
