The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) will be offered to any junior or senior at PHS on Thursday, December 9th at 7:30 am in the Guidance Career Center. The ASVAB is a timed multi-aptitude test developed and maintained by the Department of Defense (DOD). The ASVAB helps the DOD determine whether you are a good fit to join the service and which service branch you might be best for as well as the military jobs you qualify for. There is no charge for the exam. If interested, please see Mr. Shannon in Guidance for a permission slip as space is limited.
