Sign up for Practice Tests

Pacific Ridge School will administer an optional ACT diagnostic test for students in the 10th and 11th grade. The detailed score report from this practice test provides invaluable information as students work with College Guidance and the resource of Compass to craft a testing plan informed by each student’s individual schedule and needs.  If the date/time of this opportunity will not work for you, please stop by College Guidance for instructions for testing at home at your convenience.

NOTE: Students with testing on file with the Student Support Center at Pacific Ridge should connect with them or with College Guidance to learn about the process for applying for accommodation with the ACT.

The deadline for RSVPs is December 1st.

For those students who cannot attend the ACT event, please register for our Online Testing Center ACT (available 12/3/22-1/15/23). The registration deadline is Thursday, December 1st. On Friday, December 2nd, we will send you a detailed confirmation email; the link to take the test will be included; you can take the test anytime during the testing window. There is no charge for this alternative online testing window.


Saturday, December 3rd, 8:30 AM


The ACT Practice Test will be administered in the West Reading Room.
