ACT Aspire is a relatively new standardized test for third through eighth graders designed to assess the new Common Core standards in alignment with national and college readiness ACT subject areas. These five academic areas are Math, Reading, English, Writing, and Science.

Since the 2014-2015 school year, the Archdiocese of Chicago began administrating the ACT Aspire test in all area catholic schools. More information about the ACT Aspire, including grade-level test exemplars for each subject test, can be found on
