The United States Military has several major branches: the Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, Navy, Coast Guard and their Reserve, the Air National Guard and the Army National Guard.
The ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) is the standard pre-enlistment screening test used by all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. It is given at the high school in the Career Center at the end of November. Please listen to announcements in regards to signing up to take the test.
The ASVAB measures math and verbal ability and inventories personal preferences and vocational interests. The test links student’s abilities and interests to specific military occupations. ASVAB results are used by the military to determine which training programs military applicants are qualified to enter.
The ASVAB is required of all military enlistees and ROTC candidates. It is recommended for any student interested in obtaining more career-planning information. (Note: ASVAB results are accepted for military enlistment for two years after test date.) Taking the ASVAB does not obligate a student to join the military.
Recruiters frequently visit the school. These visits are included in the announcements.
