• 10th-12th grades: The ASVAB is a test used to help students figure out what they may want to pursue when they are older. It is administered under the assistance of the military but it offers career information and an analysis of interests. It is composed of multiple parts including math, English, science and practical information related to electrical and automotive subjects, plus more. It is a timed test. After tests are scored, a representative comes back to help students interpret their scores and how the ASVAB can help them continue to learn about areas of interest. It has great information for all students, no matter their military views. If you are interested in taking this test, please sign up in Student Services before Friday, Sept. 29. After students sign up a date for the test will be scheduled. If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Schlenvogt or email lschlenvogt@eskymos.com.
