  • A free aptitude test is given to interested 10th, 11th & 12th grade students yearly. CVHS endorses this test as an additional method for students to learn about their vocational aptitudes.  The ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) is a group of ten tests designed to measure a student's aptitude in five separate career field areas and also provides an indication of academic aptitude. 
  • The ASVAB is an extensively researched test battery developed by experts in the testing field, counselors and educators.  Students will be given the option of whether to release or not release information to military recruiters.
  • The test is administered as a courtesy of the armed forces at no cost or obligation to the student.  This test is advantageous for all students and we believe your child may be better able to define his/her career choices based on this test.  Each student will receive a copy of his/her tests scores along with an interpretation on test interpretation night. 

Test Interpretation Night

Students and parents are invited to the ASVAB Test Interpretation Night at CVHS on November 18th to hear about the Career Exploration Scores.  All students will receive individual ASVAB program results and will learn strategies for career exploration and decision making. It will include a career survey, which when coupled with the aptitude results, enables the student to focus in on possible careers and college majors.
