ACT’s commitment to advancing and celebrating equity, access, and opportunity for all is embedded in our DNA. More than 60 years ago, ACT’s founders believed that our signature standardized college admissions test would broaden access to college for underrepresented students and help diversify college campuses. This foresight is now ACT’s mission—a vision to help more people learn, measure their progress, and improve their navigation through life’s transitions.
Latino Student Success
ACT collaborates across the Latino community and with organizations that work in direct service to Latino students, educators, and institutions. Join us in celebrating three such relationships with organizations that have been instrumental in their service to Latino students and their success.
To commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the ACT Scholars Program, we contacted current and former ACT Scholars to learn how the full-tuition scholarships and perquisites affected their lives. Explore our brief and infographic to learn more about their stories of success.
Schools of Excellence
The Schools of Excellence program honors schools that demonstrate commitment to student success and were key contributors in helping ACAC fulfill its mission of increasing the number of first-generation college students and students from low-income families who pursue a postsecondary degree or other higher education credential.
