Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB)

Granger ISD sophomores will take the ASVAB on September 23 at 9:00 am. The same testing opportunity will be available for Juniors and Seniors. 

Taking the ASVAB does not commit students to anything. The ASVAB can help students determine their own interests and aptitude even if they are not planning to enter the military or are undecided. It can help students choose courses for college and make personal career decisions.

The ASVAB Career Exploration Program (ASVAB CEP) is a free program offered by the Department of Defense that consists of:

  • The ASVAB multiple aptitude test
  • Interest Self-Assessment
  • Career Exploration Tools

Laws and Rules

Senate Bill (SB) 1843 (85th Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2017) authorizes that each school year, each school district is required to provide students in grades 10 through 12 an opportunity to take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test and consult with a military recruiter.

Additionally, SB 1843 requires that school districts communicate the date, time and location of testing to students and their parent/guardians.
