You can select CHS as your first choice test site when you register online by putting in the CHS test center code which is 173160. To authorize ACT to release your test scores to CHS, you will need to provide our high school code which is 240423.

We highly recommend that juniors take the ACT at least once in the spring of their junior year. The ACT also has an optional Writing test, and because colleges like the U of MN Twin Cities and Duluth require it, we also encourage juniors to take the Writing test at least once.
