Do you need to take the ACT or SAT and if so what score do you need for admission?

You only need to take it if you want to get into a college or university that is not a community college. It depends what college you want to go to, a good ACT score is a 30, but not many people score this, the average is about a 20 or 25, and a good SAT score is a 1500 is the average, and the highest is 2400. It all depends on what your college of choice requires, most ivy league schools require higher than average scores, but you also need a good GPA.
