Are you interested in your student taking the ASVAB in October 2023? Each October Owosso High School provides the opportunity for students who are interested in exploring their personal skills toward work and potential careers, to take the ASVAB test. The ASVAB is a testing tool that provides the opportunity to assess workplace skills. At a later date the results and interpretations will be given to the students and indicate what careers they have an aptitude toward as they plan beyond high school. Additionally, the results can provide students a variety of information not just on the careers themselves but on the careers they could be innately good at. That knowledge can then be used now as they consider studying or training for after high school. Sign up will be announced in September 2023, but you are welcome to speak with a counselors anytime about this opportunity.
What is the ASVAB? ASVAB stands for, Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB). It is a heavily researched and well-respected aptitude test developed by the Department of Defense and available for free to high schools nationwide as a tool to, "helps predict future academic and occupational success." Following the test, a post-test interpretation is a guided session where students are given the opportunity to review their ASVAB score reflective of their interests and strengths. The post-test review is a chance to "discover many ways to enter potentially satisfying career fields" while planning a career pathway while in school and beyond high school. To learn more about the ASVAB we invite you to review the ASVAB's Parent Guide for Career Planning.
