ACT Score Reports

For all tests other than the one administered by PHS in April for juniors, students will need to log-in to their ACT account to view them. For more information about this, click here

For the junior ACT given by PHS during the school week for juniors, paper copies of the score reports will be mailed to students' homes 4-6 weeks after the test is taken. 

Score reports from tests given during the 2016-17 school year and beyond will look different than those from previous school years. Click here for a handout from ACT explaining how to interpret and read the new score reports. Below is a sample of a new score report:
