FHS CAREER CENTER:

The ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) Career Exploration Assessment will be given on Tuesday, 12/6 at 7:35am to interested students.

The ASVAB Career Exploration Program provides students with career exploration scores which can help determine their readiness for further education and training in different career areas.  Knowing their academic strengths and weaknesses now gives them time to improve before starting a job, beginning college or  vocational school, or entering the military.  Additional information is available by going to https://www.asvabprogram.com/.

Students interested in taking the ASVAB should contact Mrs. Fraley at fraleyu@fpsct.org.

The program specifically places emphasis on the following driving situations:

  • Driver Experience – young drivers and driver behavior based on maturity
  • Improper Driver Behavior – careless driving habits - speeding, turn signal use
  • Safety Restraints – proper seat belt usage
  • Impaired Driving – alcohol usage, controlled substance, drowsiness
  • Distracted Driving – cell phones, passenger activities
