    • ASVAB Career Exploration Program
      Open to students in grades 10-12.  While it is true that a student who wishes to enlist in any military branch of service after high school must take the ASVAB, taking ASVAB CEP does not obligate a student to enter the military, nor does it obligate a student to speak to a recruiter.
       
      After taking the ASVAB CEP, a student will have access to a career exploration program that can be beneficial in helping to decide what career path might be best suited to him/her, and help to narrow down choices in college or vocational schools after high school.
       
      For more information about the ASVAB CEP, you can explore their webpage here or email Mrs. Desmangles, see above for her email address .
  • The ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitute Battery) is completely FREE and has now become one of the most widely used aptitute tests in the world. 
     
  • Most tests consist of a number of multiple-choice questions. There are usually four answers to choose from. Other tests ask that students choose whether the statements applies to them completely, not at all, or to a lesser or greater extent. The "neutral" option should also be available if you are undecided on some statements.

Career Exploration - 
Learning about different careers is a process. Students should not feel that they need to decide now what they will do for long-term work. But finding out which careers might be a good fit for your interests and talents can be fun! Utilize our Career Exploration page to find out information about careers that you already have in mind or take an interest inventory to have careers suggested based on your skills and interests. 
For students looking to explore their career path at home, these sites are a good place to start. Engaging in conversation with adults in a variety of occupations can provide some invaluable insight as well. 
 
California CareerZone - California CareerZone is a career exploration and planning system designed especially for students. We encourage students to create an account so they can track their search and note which occupations they find interesting. A good place for students to start is with the Interest Profiler. They can continue on to complete the Work Importance Profiler and Assess Yourself assessment. Comprehensive information on 900 occupations includes state specific wages, worker attributes, job characteristics, and much more. 
 
Big Future - This is CollegeBoard's planner which allows students to find college majors based on their interests, get career ideas or watch videos to see how others decided on careers.
