The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading, and science. Each is scored on a scale of 1 to 36, and the student’s composite score is the average of the four tests. Nationally, roughly 1/10 of 1 percent of test-takers achieves a composite 36.
 
FCPS students take the ACT in March of their junior year; individuals may also take the exam at other times, including the summer months. After each school year, the district recognizes those who recorded a composite 36.
