What is ACT?

  • The ACT is a college entrance exam that every student should take if they are interested in attending a 2-year community college or a 4-year university. It is scored 1-36.

  • This test is a four hour paper/pencil exam that consists of English, reading, math, and science.


We do not test at Van Horn High School, however our students can register and test at one of the other high schools in our district:

Independence, MO 64050
School Code: 179300

Truman High School

When you register for the ACT, make sure you use the school codes of one of these high schools for the "testing site" during registration.
