ACT and SAT Information

372552 is the high school code for Community Christian School. Use this code in registering for the ACT or SAT test.  Scroll down for ACT and SAT testing dates.

ACT has implemented two new opportunities for students to gain information about colleges and the ACT test. First is the ACT College Search app for iPhone and iPod users (free download) to search for colleges and universities through five filters: locations, type, size, admission, and cost. Once users have entered their preferences on those criteria, the application returns results based on their choices. Users can add colleges to their favorites list as they move through the results. Each college or university page provides a map of the school's location and links to the school's website and its social media networks. Other information provided includes degrees offered, tuition, student demographics, admission requirements, average first-year student ACT scores, and housing options.
Another free application - the ACT Student app - offers clusters of information about the ACT test. Users can access practice questions and helpful tips. They can also access limited information specific to them about their registration and score status. Short videos providing more information, such as which items to bring to the test center on test day, are available on this mobile application.
 
ACT Prep Workshop - OCCC Capitol Hill Center will be having one last ACT prep workshop this Spring. The class will be April 1st from 9 a.m. -  2 p.m. and will be $20.00 to enroll. I encourage all juniors and seniors, particularly those taking the April ACT test, to attend and bring a friend. The class covers the test in its entirety and provides students with a plethora of resources they can use once the workshop is over. This class will take place at the OCCC Capitol Hill Center located at:
 
123 SW 25th Street, Suite 100
Oklahoma City, OK 73109
 
PRE-ACT will be given to all 10th graders at no cost to the parents.  The test will be given on Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2016, at the Activity Center beginning at 7:50a.m.  Students will need to bring two #2 pencils and an approved calculator.  (The Oklahoma State Regents is covering the cost for all 10th graders to take this new exam.)

ACT ASSESSMENT AND ACT ASSESSMENT PLUS WRITING - Choose either of two test options. The ACT Assessment Plus Writing includes a 30 minute writing test. Not all colleges and universities require a Writing Test. Check with the colleges you are considering or go to www.actstudent.org for a list of institutions that require or recommend the Writing Test.
