Signup to take the ASVAB today!  If you are in 10th, 11th, or 12th grade and need some help making career decisions, then consider taking the ASVAB.  The ASVAB is designed to help you learn more about yourself and the world of work, explore occupational skills in line with your interests and skills, and develop a strategy to realize your career goals.  This free assessment is offered at EHS on Wednesday, March 15th and there is absolutely no military commitment by taking the test.  For the juniors who need to complete the ACT 158 Keystone graduation requirement, this is great way to fulfil that– all you need to do is score a 31 on this test.  You can find the sign up link in Schoology as well as on the Counseling webpage.
