ASVAB (The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery)

The ASVAB measures student strengths, weaknesses, and potential for future success. It also provides students with career information for various civilian and military occupations and is an indicator for success in future endeavors whether choosing to go to college, vocational school, or a military career. The ASVAB is good practice for the ACT as well. 

The test will be offered at PHS:

  • November 6, 2019

Practice tests for the ASVAB are available at:

Students who take the ASVAB also receive access to the ASVAB Career Exploration Program. This program will help students identify and explore occupations.This exceptional program is free and you receive the following career tools:

  • ASVAB Summary test results --show how well you did in relation to others who took the test.
