Juniors and Seniors: Get Ready to take ASVAB

Juniors and Seniors interested in joining the military have the opportunity to register and take the ASVAB here at Weston Ranch High School on November 16.

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test is a multiple-aptitude battery that measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success in the military. It is administered annually to more than one million military applicants, high school, and post-secondary students (www.officialasvab.com).

An important part of a recruiter’s job is to screen applicants to ensure they measure up. Even before a recruiter sends you to take the ASVAB, they will ask about your marital status, health, education, drug use, and arrest record. It’s very important that you answer these questions openly and honestly. Once the recruiter has determined that you are qualified for further processing, you will be scheduled to take the ASVAB. A physical exam may also be conducted at that time (www.officialasvab.com).

Registration is now open and will continue through October 29. Seats are limited, so it is suggested to register early. Again, the test will be on November 16. WRHS will offer a second test in the Spring of 2022.

The test is free and provides a test score that enables you to see if you qualify for the military.

All Juniors and Seniors interested in taking the ASVAB should contact their counselors.
