ACT (State Administration)
North Carolina has recently added a new test to our calendar. All 11th graders are now required to take the ACT test. This is considered a state test and is administered on a school day by the school staff. Test results from the state administration of the ACT are college acceptable.

This test is being paid for by the state of North Carolina. You do not need to register online. South Meck High School will be applying for test accommodations for students with IEP's or 504 plans. ACT must approve testing accommodations for their test. If you have any questions regarding testing students with disabilities on the state ACT, please contact Elaine Miller at 980-343-3600.

The tentative tests dates are February 27 and March 20 (make ups).
Test scores will be mailed directly to the student approximately 5-8 weeks after the test date.
