  • Most Frequently Asked Questions

       How do I send a transcript?

    Our process for sending transcripts is changing as of November 1, 2019.  We will be changing over to an online-based, transcript request system.  The link will be found on the main home screen of our James Clemens' website.  If you need any help, please feel free to stop by the guidance office. 

    When can I take the ACT? Are there any resources available for help?

    Students may begin taking the ACT before their senior year.  We offer the ACT schoolwide in the spring for all juniors during school hours.  Otherwise, we do often times serve as a testing site for most ACT test days.  The ACT testing website is the best resource for exact dates and testing center locations.  We do offer a 9 week ACT test prep course that students can request in their schedule.  There is also an ACT seminar that will be offered on October 21st-22nd after school through the Sycamore Learning Company.  More information, such as the cost, will be released by early October.  Our free/reduced lunch students can qualify for a waiver that applies to two ACT tests.  See Mrs. Meskunas for more information.
