VHS juniors to take ACT Exam on March 21

Yuma Union High School District will administer the ACT Exam on Tuesday, March 21 for 11th grade (Class of 2024 cohort) students. 

Students in Grades 9, 10 and 12 will work independently from home on their classes through the Canvas Learning Management System and enter their attendance through a Google form for each class.

Students in Grade 11 will be the ONLY students on campus on this day. School will start at its regularly scheduled time with a modified bell schedule to follow.

Testers will be dismissed at the following times:

  • Vista High School will start school at 8:30 a.m. with 11th grade students being dismissed at 2:37 p.m.

All students will return to their respective campuses on Wednesday, March 22.

The ACT includes multiple-choice tests in English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science, and a Writing essay in English. The ACT matches well with the state’s education standards, measures what is learned in high school, and provides a measure of academic readiness for college classes. Additionally, the results may be used when exploring college majors, careers, and life goals. Results are available to schools 6-8 weeks after students participate in testing.
