ASVAB
Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery

On Wednesday, October 12, Walton High School will offer an administration of the ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) during PSAT Day. Interested juniors and seniors need to register by Monday, October 10. 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.
