Mountain Oaks students have an opportunity to take the ASVAB assessment. It is proctored by the military for entrance screening, but it’s so much more. It actually gives you an opportunity to see what your strengths and weaknesses might be in the career fields. It’s pretty difficult these days to decide a career, so why not take an assessment and receive great feedback to help you in your choices? If you are interested in the military, here’s your chance to get started. If not, please don’t shy away. You can use this assessment for your own personal knowledge, or to get ready for college. Mountain Oaks will not release any information to military recruiters!!
