Google Sign-Up for ASVAB

Please click the link below if you would like to take the ASVAB. This test is required for students who are interested in enlisting in any of the military branches, but is also a wonderful aptitude test for students who are not sure what skills they are best at and what might be a perfect career choice for them. This is helpful even if you are not planning on enlisting and all are welcome to take it. There is no fee to do so.
