Do you need help in deciding what to do after high school? The military uses a test called the ASVAB to decide how to place someone, but you can take the same test to help you choose a civilian career. The ASVAB will be given at NFA on Wednesday, February 17th from 11:30 – 2:30. It is a series of 8 short tests providing scores in vocational areas like electronics, mechanics and automotive repair. Once the test is scored, you will have the opportunity to fill out a questionnaire about the types of work that interests you. Together the ASVAB and questionnaire will help you make choices right for your interests and abilities. Sign up in your guidance office.
Attention sophomores and juniors: If you took the PSAT on October 13th, 2015, your score reports and test booklet are available for you to pick up in your school counselor’s office.
