More Juniors Take ACT

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

More juniors in Montana took the ACT in the spring thanks to a grant that made it free.

The Office of Public Instruction says 9,000 juniors took the test in April. That's nearly 3,000 more than the graduating class of 2013. More students also qualified for more scholarships, including 840 more students receiving the governor's "Best and Brightest."

In 2011 a grant was awarded covering the cost of the test for seven years for every public high school junior in the state. The ACT typically runs about $50 to take the test.
