ASVAB Testing

Last spring, we administered the ASVAB to 62 juniors and seniors in the tiered lecture room, and those students received very useful data in regards of career and college readiness.

We will be signing students up to take the ASVAB career exploration assessment in the near future. Our ASVAB testing date will be November 1st at 8:00 a.m.

The ASVAB Career Exploration Program is an excellent way to help our students in both ACT/College readiness and career readiness. Please keep in mind the ASVAB CEP is available to juniors and seniors only.

More information about the ASVAB will be made available soon.
