myollegeOptions® Questionnaires

In September of each year, you may receive a package from ACTE that contains questionnaires for you and your students. These questionnaires are a collaboration with myCollegeOptions®, the nation’s largest college planning program, and they provide ACTE with valuable research on CTE program elements and student outcomes. Every student that participates will receive a free Online College Planning Account through which they will be matched with postsecondary institutions, and have access to resources to assist them in their postsecondary planning. Participation in this program is completely voluntary and is provided at no cost. Student information is used only for educational purposes. No student data is released to commercial marketers. For educators, myCollegeOptions® will provide you with a personalized report about your students and how their results compare with other classes around the country. You may receive survey requests from other companies that do not have a relationship with ACTE. It important that you select the package that is branded with ACTE’s logo and the address 3651 Ralph Powell Road, Lee’s Summit, MO 64064. For more information and to request materials, check out the myCollegeOptions® Frequently Asked Questions. If you did not receive any questionnaires but would like to participate, or need additional forms, please visit
