The ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) Career Exploration Assessment will be given on Tuesday, 12/8 at 7:35am to interested juniors and seniors.

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 they start a job, begin a college or vocational school, or enter 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.
