Testing Information

Students will encounter many high stakes tests at the high school level. Counselors recommend preparing well to ensure the best possible score.


The American College Test (ACT) is a standardized test that colleges use for admissions. Click here to learn more about the ACT and to register for a National Exam. National Exams are given throughout the year on a Saturday morning at various locations throughout the United States, as well as Farmington High School. 

There are several resources available in the career center to assist students in preparation for ACT and SAT tests. In addition, the Minnesota Career Information Systems (MCIS) program offers several comprehensive online practice tests. To access the practice tests, students must create a personal account.

All juniors at Farmington High School will be provided an opportunity to take the ACT in the spring (April) on a school day. Students will register to take this exam during RAMP. Parents do not need to register for this FREE exam. Students will have access to ACT preparation materials through PLATO online learning. Students interested in preparing for the ACT using PLATO should see their school counselor for login information.

Farmington Community Education, in cooperation with Advantage Educational Programs will offer an ACT or SAT preparatory course in late winter-early spring. For more information please refer to the Farmington Community Education brochure.
