The ASVAB empowers students to make post-secondary and career plans relevant to their unique strengths and interests. The ASVAB is a college and career exploration program and our purpose is to support students with career exploration. It is completely up to the students joining the military. No student contact information will be required in the test.

The ASVAB will be offered to ALL SENIORS.
On Tuesday, December 5 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the Auditorium for students in Economics/AP Euro this semester. Students must report at 8:00 a.m.

On Wednesday, December 6 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Auditorium for students in Government this semester. Students must report at 8:30 a.m. 

Lunch accomodations will be made for all students. Please contact Dr. Manuel Avila in the College & Career Center for more information.

FAQs
Isn't the ASVAB only for those interested in joining the military?
Military service is NOT required to participate in the ASVAB Career Exploration Program. While the ASVAB was originally designed for military entrance and job classification, the ASVAB assesses a range of aptitudes that can be used to predict success in a wide variety of occupations, not just those in the military. Recruiter contact is entirely optional.

Why should I take the ASVAB?
The ACT and SAT measure achievement and are often necessary for college admissions. The ASVAB is different in that it measures a person's aptitudes and the skills they have learned or can acquire. Because of this, ASVAB scores can help students understand the areas where they are most trainable and identify potential career fields where their strengths will be an asset. The career planning tools and resources available to students after taking the ASVAB are the true advantage of program participation.

How wil the results of the ASVAB benefit me?
The ASVAB is different from other career aptitude tests for high school students because it’s the only career-planning resource that assesses both skill and training potential. This career counseling session is called the Post-Test Interpretation (PTI). It is arguably the most valuable aspect of the ASVAB. During a 45-minute session, a trained expert discusses in detail what scores mean, how they can be used for career exploration, and the many activities and resources available at asvabprogram.com, including those named above. Once students have identified careers they are interested in exploring, the program offers tools that turn their idea into an action plan.
