ALL juniors will take the ACT during the school day on February 27. The February 27 ACT is a state-sponsored test and a graduation requirement, which means WHS will register all juniors for this test; you do NOT need to register for it on your own. Should junior families decide you would like additional standardized testing opportunities, you are responsible for selecting the date(s) that work best and registering for those tests at act.org or collegeboard.org
Junior families are STRONGLY encouraged to sign up for a college counseling/post-secondary planning appointment with their College Counselor. Mrs. Meis works with last names A-L and Mrs. Bunton works with last names M-Z. Both Counselors use an online scheduling system; the link to that system can be found under the Guidance page of the website. You may also contact Mrs. Meis at email@example.com or Mrs. Bunton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All sophomore and junior families (parents and students) are invited to attend Test Interpretation and College Panel Night on January 23rd at 6:00-8:00 PM in Pendery Auditorium. Information will be presented by representatives from The College Board, TorchPrep, The Ohio State University, The University of South Carolina, The University of Alabama, Butler University, Centre College, and Kenyon College.
