Academically, the junior year is a perfect time to evaluate student preparedness for college courses. We would like to offer JUNIORS the opportunity to evaluate their skills by taking the COMPASS® exam at the Washington Kirkwood Center before the school year ends. This exam is free of charge. Students will need their social security number to take the exam. Questions about social security numbers can be directed to the Washington Kirkwood Center at 653-4655.


We will provide school transportation during the school day to take the COMPASS® exam. It is a 90-minute computer-adaptive college placement test which helps to evaluate students' skill levels in reading, writing, and math, place students in appropriate courses, and connect them to the resources they need to achieve academic success. Students may sign up in the counseling office for one of the testing times offered from May 12-25, 2011 (8:20-9:50, 9:50-11:20, 11:20-12:40, 1:20-2:50, 3:00-4:30). If students would like to prepare for the exam, ACT provides a COMPASS® Prep at this website: http://www.act.org/compass/sample/index.html. Students may also take the exam during the summer by calling the Washington Kirkwood Center (653-4655). If you have questions, please contact the HS Counseling Office at 653-4245.
