  4. Provide a Senior Schedule that lists of all courses you are taking during your Senior year of high school if you are still enrolled. This is to be sure you are on track to complete the required high school curriculum.

ACT scores can be requested via ACT using our school code 0799. Please allow up to 4 weeks for test scores to be mailed as we are unable to upload these electronically.
