News and Annoucements

On Tuesday, April 7th, all high school juniors and sophomores will be taking the ACT or PreACT test. All juniors will take the ACT (with Writing) assessment free of charge due to the Montana GEAR UP (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) grant. The ACT is a state-required test.  New this year, sophomores will take the PreACT on the same day, also free of charge. Factoring in all the logistics, time, and disruptions, we determined that it is in the best interest of all our high school students to have only sophomores and juniors on campus on April 7th. There will be no school for freshmen or seniors on April 7th.  We strongly encourage 9th and 12th graders to plan community service projects on this day. Seniors could also plan college or trade school visits or explore potential job opportunities.

Below is our schedule for Tuesday, April 7th. Please note that times are approximate. We will offer lunch for both sophomores and juniors. There will be one pizza/sub line in the south cafeteria for sophomores and another pizza/sub line in the north cafeteria for juniors to minimize distractions. Students still must pay for their lunch or charge their lunch account per usual. 

There will be NO zero period.

8:25 AM - Sophomores & Juniors check into their assigned classrooms.

  • Busses will run their normal morning routes to pick up students.
  • Students will be assigned to classrooms for their test prior to testing day.

8:45 AM - ACT & PreACT Test will begin.

  • ACT takes approximately four hours to take.
  • PreACT will take just over three hours to take (including a 45 minute interest inventory).

12:15 PM - Sophomore lunch available in BHS South Cafeteria. 

  • There will be scheduled classes/events for sophomores until the end of the normal school day. 
  • Attendance will be taken.

1:00 - Juniors released from school for the day upon their completion. Lunch available in BHS North Cafeteria.

3:35 - End of the normal school day.

  • Normal bus pickup time for any students on campus.

The students taking the ACT without testing accommodations or with ACT-approved accommodations will receive scores that are reportable to colleges, universities, and scholarship organizations and are accepted by the National College Athletic Association (NCAA). ACT will send reportable scores to juniors at their home addresses within three to eight weeks after the testing. Sophomores will receive their PreACT score reports within a few weeks after testing as well.

Please contact Justin Helvik, assistant principal at Bozeman High School, if you have any questions regarding the ACT or PreACT. You can reach him at or 406-522-6243.
