ASVAB – November 7th, 2017 and February 22nd, 2018

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery or ASVAB for short is an aptitude test that measures your academic and vocational skills.  It is also used by the military to determine your suitability for various job positions.  Taking the test does not obligate you for military service.  However, once you reach age 17, the scores can be used for military service if you desire.  Students grades 10-12 are eligible to test.  The ASVAB will be given on November 7th, 2017 and February 22nd, 2018 this year.  Please see Mrs. Simons in the ZHS Media Center to register.  Practice for the ASVAB may be accomplished by reviewing ASVAB practice manuals available in print from Mrs. Simons, at commercial book stores, online, or by visiting the following websites:
