ASVABASVAB stands for the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery. The ASVAB is a multiple-aptitude battery that measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success in the military. Here at WHS, we offer the ASVAB for free, once a year, in November. To sign up, please see Mrs. Moore in the Career Center.
The ASVAB gives a score, which is the AFQT (Armed Forces Qualification Test). Each branch of the service has a minimum score set for entry. The minimum AFQT scores for each branch are as follows:
- Air Force – 36
- Army & National Guard – 31
- Coast Guard – 40
- Marine Corps – 32
- Navy – 35
While the test is provided and administered by the military, student scores are for personal and school use only and not utilized by the armed services without the student’s consent.
Military Recruiter visitsMrs. Moore, Career Specialist, coordinates multiple visits from all the military branches throughout the school year. For more information or to contact a specific branch, please contact her directly.
AFJROTCHere at WHS, we are home to an award winning Air Force JROTC program. JROTC stands for Junior Reserve Officer’s Training Corps. It is a military-regulated program designed to offer high school students leadership experiences and motivate them to become better American citizens. JROTC combines classroom instruction with service to school and community, extracurricular and social activities and the chance to take on leadership roles. The WHS AFJROTC program can be taken all 4 years, if chosen to do so, and can include extracurricular Drill & Ceremonies activities.
AFJROTC is NOT a direct entry or link to the military, although, for those high school students who are interested in pursuing a career in the military, JROTC offers relevant experience and an opportunity to improve entry-level rank.
