ACT State and District Testing

ACT State and District Testing Spring, 11th grade ACT with Writing is a national standardized test developed to determine college readiness for high school students and college admissions. The test has 5 sections: English, Math, Reading, Science and Writing. The state of Minnesota requires all public high schools to offer a college entrance exam to all students in either their junior or senior year.


Farmington High School offers the ACT to all FHS juniors free of charge during the April statewide administration. The ACT is also available to be taken at FHS multiple times throughout the school year during the national administrations (not free of charge). You may contact the FHS counseling office for further information on the national ACT administrations.


Students have access to test results 4 – 6 weeks after completing the ACT. Summary reports are provided to the school in late August. More information about the ACT.
