ACT, AzM2, and AzSCI testing in April

City High School will be administering statewide achievement tests (AzM2 and AzSCI) for 10th grade students and the ACT college entrance exam for 11th grade students throughout the month of April. All of these tests are in-person and will be administered at the school on the days and times listed below.

The AzM2 are tests required by the Arizona Department of Education that measure student learning in Math, Reading, And Writing. All 10th grade students are expected to take these tests.

The AzSCI is a required statewide achievement test for Science. All 11th grade students are expected to take the AzSCI.

For all students who are doing in-person hybrid learning, you will take the AzM2 and the AzSCI when they are given on the days and times listed below. For all students doing all remote learning, please complete the registration form to indicate that you will or will not be participating in these state-mandated tests. AzM2 Registration (for 10th grade students) and AzSCI Registration (for 11th grade students).

The ACT is a college entrance exam intended for current 11th grade students. The ACT is one of the two college entrance exams that some colleges look at for college admissions and scholarship purposes (the other test is the SAT). There are other testing dates available at other locations for students (here are the links to testing days for the ACT and the SAT), but as a service to students and families we are offering the ACT free of charge at City High School on April 13. In-state universities in Arizona (UA, ASU, and NAU) do not require these tests for admission if the applicant has a 3.0 grade point average (GPA) or higher. However, a score on the ACT could give an applicant an advantage for merit-based scholarships or admission, if the student has below a 3.0 GPA. A student can also take these tests (ACT and SAT) more than once to try to improve their score. There will be test dates available as late as October 2021 for college applications for Fall of 2022.

Juniors who are planning to take the ACT test or their parent/guardian, need to send an email to Luci Pavlich, Test Coordinator, at luciap@cityccl.org. In your email please include the student’s name. Luci will email you the pre-test information, your student code, and registration to be filled out prior to the testing day.  Please respond by Thursday, April 8. Please note the arrival time for ACT testing is 8:45 a.m. on Tuesday, April 13.
