For students interested in joining the military, they should begin by meeting with local recruiters for the branch they are considering. They will probably be told they will need to take the ASVAB to determine what skill sets and job best suit them for specialization while in the service. The ASVAB is offered at SKHS and students should visit the Career Center to sign up.
The Armed Services offer students many career and educational opportunities. When looking into these options, students should explore the wide range of programs available including enlistment opportunities, ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corp) scholarships, and GI Bill funding for higher education.
