Military, Technical Schools, and Other Options

Not everyone goes to college, at least not right away.  Whether you're planning to go into the military or join the workforce, there's help here for you, too!
Military -
  • PLEASE NOTE:  The ASVAB for seniors will be on September 25, 2023 at 7:50 am.  Please sign up in the guidance office. Underclassmen will be permitted if space allows.  An additional ASVAB test will be given in January 2024.
  • The Armed Services Vocational Assessment Battery (ASVAB) is given at HHS every November and March (please sign up ahead in the Guidance Office). The ASVAB is a timed multi-aptitude test, which is given at over 14,000 schools and Military Entrance Processing Stations (MEPS) nationwide and is developed and maintained by the Department of Defense.  A student does not have to make a commitment to the military to take this assessment or to benefit from career information that it supplies.
If you are interested in learning more about the opportunities the military offers, please contact the recruiters below or see Mrs. Cardell in the Guidance Office.
