    Free ACT College Entrance Exam

    The state of South Carolina is offering free of charge to all third year high school students the administration of the ACT college entrance exam.  The ACT measures the English, math, reading, science and writing skills students need to succeed in college and beyond.

    If you would like your child to take the ACT in spring 2016, ask your child about the letter containing the registration form they got in homeroom.  A copy of the registration letter can also be found on our school website:  http://chs.sumterschools.net

    It is important that you take care of this right away if you want your child to participate, as registration forms must be mailed or returned to the guidance office no later than February 5, 2016.

    If you have questions or concerns please contact the guidance office at (803) 469-6200 ext. 7116.
