UPDATED: Here is what families need to know about ACT

UPDATE: We previously reported a list of schools giving the ACT tomorrow (Tuesday, March 18). Two of those reported schools will NOT be giving the test: East Nashville Magnet and Nashville School of the Arts. All other listed schools will be giving the ACT to all 11th graders tomorrow.

All Metro Schools 11th graders were originally scheduled to take the ACT back on March 4. Thanks to the ice-pocalypse, that didn't happen. A few schools were able to give students a make up test on March 6, but that didn't happen for everyone.

So what happens now?

Most 11th graders in Metro Schools will take the ACT on Tuesday, March 18. This is not a school day - it's an inservice day for teachers - so there are some special instructions.

Here is everything you need to know:

The following high schools are currently scheduled to give the ACT to 11th graders on Tuesday, March 18*:

  • Antioch
  • Cane Ridge
  • Glencliff
  • Hillsboro
  • Hume-Fogg
  • Hunters Lane
  • McGavock
  • MLK
  • MNPS Virtual School
  • Nashville School of the Arts
  • Pearl-Cohn
  • Stratford

*It was previously reported that East Nashville Magnet and Nashville School of the Arts were also giving the ACT. That was incorrect. East Nashville and NSA will NOT give the ACT on Tuesday.

Students should have received details from their school counselor about testing times.

Students who can't take the ACT on Tuesday, March 18, should check with their school counselor for a voucher to take the test at a later date.

School buses will run regular routes for high schools, but they will pick up one hour later than normal. There will be no MTA bus service to schools.

Schools will dismiss at noon, and school buses will take students home on regular routes.

If you have additional questions, please contact your school or call the Customer Service Center at 259-INFO (4636).
