ACT Aspire Testing
At Phoenix Christian, we use the ACT College and Career Readiness Standards.
“These standards serve as a link between what students have learned and what they are ready to learn next. The Standards are also linked to college instruction. More than 40 years of research has shown that performance on the ACT is directly related to first-year college grade point average.”
Teachers at Phoenix Christian are dedicated to producing students that have the necessary skills to succeed at a college level. This process begins at an early age! For this reason, all of our standards and instruction are tied to the ACT College and Career Readiness Standards. Additionally, we monitor students’ progress with these standards using the ACT Aspire Summative and Periodic Assessments in third grade through 10th grade.
