ASVAB

ASVAB TESTING DETAILS

  • We are offering the ASVAB to Seniors, Juniors, and Sophomores on March 11th.  The test will begin at 9am in the HS library.  The test is approximately 3 hours long. Please see Mrs. Luberto to register.  

    Below are some details about the ASVAB. 

    The ASVAB is a multiple-aptitude battery that measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success in the military and with civilian career development. It is administered annually to more than one million military applicants, high school, and post-secondary students.  If you’re not interested in the military, that’s fine because the ASVAB also provides Career Exploration and planning.  The Program encourages students to explore a wide variety of careers, rather than limiting their exploration by telling them what they can or should do.

    IMPORTANT:

    •         With a score of 30 or better you can use the ASVAB as a graduation requirement replacing the PAARC.
    •         Please note that all scores will only be released to the student and school.  Scores will not be given to the Armed Services.  What you choose to do with your scores is up to you.
