Dear colleagues,

ACT and UNCF are united in our desire to help all people succeed in education and the workplace. We share a commitment to the effective use of data and analysis to support the continuous improvement of individuals, organizations, and systems.

ACT and UNCF are proud to collaborate on this report, which is an extension of the annual ACT Condition of College & Career Readiness report series. This report provides a national snapshot of academic performance among African American students in the high school graduating class who took the ACT* college readiness assessment and addresses questions of critical importance to our nation. Are African American high school students prepared for college and career? Are younger black students on the target for college and career? Are enough black students taking core courses that will prepare them for college and career? Are African American students who are ready for college and career actually succeeding?
