ASVAB
Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery

On Wednesday, October 13th, also known as PSAT Day, Walton High School will offer an administration of the ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) from 8:00AM to approximately 11:00AM. JUNIORS – All juniors not taking the PSAT will automatically be signed up to take the ASVAB. Interested SENIORS must sign up for the ASVAB via the link below. The test will take approximately three hours. Military personnel will offer a score interpretation session approximately three weeks after the administration.

Why should I take the ASVAB?

  • Identifies a student’s skills & abilities

  • Provides career exploration information

  • Links achievement with interest

  • Assists in planning work related courses

  • Helps in identifying a potential career path

  • Does NOT obligate students to the military

  • It is free!

  • You could earn a $180,000 scholarship to college!

One recent Walton graduate first learned about the ASVAB during Junior Advisement. He signed up to take the ASVAB during his junior year. His scores identified him as a potential candidate for the military’s highest scholarship. He was recruited by the military and in early spring, he accepted a check for $180,000 to attend AUBURN University.
