Lincoln Parish School District is excited to partner with the Louisiana Department of Education to offer the Louisiana ACT® NOW Program. This program provides vouchers for eligible students in grades 10 and 12 to take an upcoming ACT®. Since 2013, Louisiana has offered the ACT® free of charge to high school juniors. This endeavor will give students in grades 10 and 12 the opportunity to receive an additional ACT® this spring at no cost to the system, student or family. Louisiana ACT® NOW will give students an additional opportunity to be placed in appropriate entry-level college courses, earn TOPS, qualify for scholarships and gain admission to the college of their choice. It can also help students become eligible for a Dual Enrollment program or other academic programs that require an ACT® score.
Students in grade 10 are eligible for an ACT® voucher if:
The student requires an ACT® score to qualify for enrollment in a Dual Enrollment program or other academic program(s) that require an ACT® score.
Students in grade 12 are eligible for an ACT® voucher if all of these apply:
The student has not earned an ACT® score that qualifies them for college admissions or TOPS, or who are seeking an opportunity to enhance their current level of TOPS Tech, TOPS Opportunity, TOPS Performance, TOPS Honors, or to seek other merit-based scholarship opportunities.
