College and Career Exploration Assessment

The ASVAB is the most widely used multi-aptitude battery test for students in the nation. 

It is an opportunity for sophomores, juniors and seniors to get an assessment of their academic ability and how that translates into real life occupations. The ASVAB is the assessment that the military utilizes to determine eligibility for the armed forces HOWEVER it is not only a military assessment. 


Several composite scores are formed from different combinations of ASVAB test scores.  Three composites or Career Exploration Scores are provided specifically to help students engage in civilian career exploration.  These scores help students to get a good sense of their verbal, math, science and technical skills compared to other students in the same grade. Once students get their scores back, they will be invited to participate in an ASVAB score interpretation. The interpretation will asses their academic scores as well as a personality inventory and provide a list of hundreds of potential careers that may be suited for their skill strengths as well as their interests. Further, under each career profile, there is data on what colleges/ technical schools have string programs for that career,where in the country those jobs are saturated as well as information on finiacil aide.


Whether students are planning to go to college, join the military, attend a technical school, or start a career – the ASVAB is a step in the right direction.


There will be several ASVAB tests scheduled to be held at school through out the year. Please check the calendar on the main page for dates, and listen for them in the morning announcements.
