CHS students: On April 17th you have an opportunity to take the ASVAB test in the career center.  The test begins at 7:45 and will last approximately three hours, fifteen minutes.

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is a multiple choice test, administered by the United States Military Entrance Processing Command, used to determine qualification for enlistment in the United States Armed Forces. It is often offered to high school students when they are in the 10th, 11th and 12th grade, though anyone eligible for enlistment may take it.  Although the test is administered by the military, it is not (and never has been) a requirement that a test-taker with a qualifying score enlist in the armed forces.  (Definition for the ASVAB taken from Wikipedia).

PLEASE SIGN UP BEFORE APRIL 15TH  IN THE CAREER CENTER TO TAKE THE TEST. 

This is the time of year where students get placed on waitlists for colleges they really want to attend. Learn about waitlists and how to respond to the news that you’ve been placed on a waitlist:   Waitlist Tips March 2014
