Military & Service Academies
Military Info & ASVAB
The Armed Services Vocational Assessment Battery (ASVAB) will be given in the EHS Lecture Hall on Thursday, Nov. 30, 2023 at 8:45 AM, and should be done close to 12:00 or 1 PM. Students will receive an Eagle Absence for the test.
There is no cost for the ASVAB. 10th - 12th graders are welcome to sign up. Results are typically delivered to EHS within 3 weeks; Ms. Velhagen will announce a results presentation & students will be able to use their career feedback to research and learn about careers -- both military & civilian -- that might be a good fit for them.
