Test Preparation

Many high school students and families are thinking ahead to preparation for the ACT, the nation’s most popular college entrance exam.  All LPS students take the ACT exam at no charge as a junior in high school as part of statewide testing.  Students also can pay a fee (or see their high school counselor to apply for a fee waiver) to take the test additional times if they choose. 

We would like to inform you about district-approved ACT preparation opportunities and college planning resources for students in Lincoln Public Schools.
