Hello. This is a reminder that all juniors will be taking the ASVAB tomorrow Friday February ninth. Please report to your first period class as normal. Your teachers will direct you where to go when it is time. The ASVAB is an aptitude test that helps predict future academic and occupational success. The ASVAB career exploration program is designed to help young people align their strengths and interests with a post-secondary plan that works. All juniors take the ASVAB in preparation for their Senior Seminar class where they are required to complete a career research paper. The career research paper and senior portfolio are graduation requirements that students will complete next year in their Senior Seminar classes. This is an extensively tested and highly useful career exploration tool, and the results are private. Students will not be able to access the ASVAB career exploration program without test results.
