• Testing opportunities - Fall 2023

     
      
    Practice ACT testing for home school students:
     
    The earlier your child starts thinking about careers and post-secondary education, the better prepared your family can be to make the right choices. In an effort to support that goal, the Anoka-Hennepin school district has reserved 25 Practice ACT tests for eleventh-grade home school students. This is a "first come, first served" opportunity. The test will be offered at Anoka Tech STEP (1353 W Hwy 10, Anoka, MN 55303). There is no cost to students for this career and college preparation test, but registration is required.
     
    The Practice ACT will be unavailable for the 2023-2024 school year. We apologize for the inconvenience. 
     
    Students who take the Practice ACT tend to do better on the ACT. The ACT measures a student's readiness for college, and is required for admission into most 4-year institutions nationwide. This assessment has proven to have a positive impact on the future of students and a higher score on the ACT, which can expand opportunities for college and financial aid.
     

    PSAT testing for home school students:

    In an effort to support our home school students in their post-secondary endeavors, the Anoka-Hennepin school district has reserved 25 PSAT tests for tenth-grade and eleventh-grade home school students. This is a "first come, first served" opportunity. This test is primarily for eleventh-graders, but tenth-graders can also take it as practice. The test will be offered at the Secondary Technical Education Program (STEP) located at 1353 W Highway 10 in Anoka, MN 55303. It will be located in the Forum Rooms. The cost for this test is $20.00. Once registrations have been received and processed, no refunds will be given.

     

    The PSAT will be given: Wednesday, October 11, 2023 from 8-11 a.m. Please arrive early.

     

    The PSAT/NMSQT is the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. The PSAT is a great primer for the SAT, and even the ACT, but it’s more than just a trial run. PSAT scores are used to identify National Merit Scholars and award merit scholarships.

     

    The registration window will be open until September 28th at 4:00PM. Register now for the PSAT.
