I am passionate about:
he student who is unsure whether college is in his or her future should take the ACT while in high school, because scores are considered current if submitted to admissions within five years.
A little known fact about me is:

"Colleges Accept Scores from the Past Five Years."
The SAT and the ACT are the primary tests used for college admissions. With the exception of students from Colorado and Illinois—states that require them to take the ACT to demonstrate mastery of key skills required under the federal No Child Left Behind Act—most high school students consider taking the ACT to satisfy admissions requirements for colleges and universities. Whether a high school junior is planning to enroll in college immediately after graduation or not, there are five great reasons why every high school student should take the ACT.
