Great Hearts is committed to an individualized approach to college counseling that focuses on finding the right fit for each student. The emphasis of the program is on helping students discover who they are as learners and emerging adults. Throughout their years at Great Hearts Monte Vista North, our students learn to be comfortable in the worlds of both ideas and practicality, understanding the relationship between the two. This serves our students particularly well when selecting a college experience.

ACT understands the many frustrations and fears students and families are likely facing, including the uncertainty associated with potential closings of test centers administering the ACT. Please be assured the health and safety of students and testing staff is a top priority. ACT is closely working with test site administrators and monitoring guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), state government, and local public health guidelines. They are preparing to support test centers that are cleared to administer the ACT on June 13, 2020. During the week of May 26, ACT will notify students and announce all test center closings and cancelations for the June 13 test date. However, as ACT and other agencies navigate ongoing developments, testing at any test center is subject to change at any time between now and June 13, 2020.
