Cape Fear Academy College Counseling Office has partnered with Compass Education to offer an on-campus, paper/pencil, ACT practice test (linear, non-adaptive) to students in the 10th and 11th grades at no cost. The test results are invaluable in helping the Cape Fear Academy College Counselors and Compass directors craft the ideal testing and tutoring plan for each student.
For students unable to attend the in-person administration, an at-home, computer-proctored, ACT practice test is available via the Online Testing Center. This test matches the current paper/pencil, linear version of the test.
