Military, ASVAB, and Service Academies


Military recruiters are available to meet with students as requested. Please check in Naviance to see a list of scheduled visits. Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) opportunities can also be explored and explained.

If the branch you would like to speak to is not listed, please see your counselor and a contact can be made. Parents are encouraged to participate in any meetings.


ASVABA benefit of our relationship with the military is the free administration of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) and Career Exploration Program.

The ASVAB is a career planning and exploration program that combines a multiple-aptitude test with an interest self-assessment and a wide range of career exploration tools. It is offered free to any interested senior or junior in January at ConVal.

The test combines an aptitude test (required for entrance to any military branch) with a career interest inventory. Following the test, representatives come to explain the results to students, and to help them match up with potential careers.

The ASVAB is an excellent assessment for any student who is still unsure about their future career path, and, for those interested in the military, it is good practice for the “real” ASVAB!
