ASVAB Schedule

Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is a FREE test given to high school Juniors and Seniors (Sophomores on space available basis) to evaluate their academic and occupational skills.  The ASVAB measures aptitudes as well as knowledge and is an excellent indicator of what the student may  score on the SAT as well as what they may enjoy as a career. The test consists of 8 areas (general science, arithmetic reasoning, word knowledge, paragraph comprehension, mathematics knowledge, electronics information, auto and shop information and mechanical comprehension) and takes approximately 3 hours to take. A few weeks later a 1 hour interpretation helps students understand their score and how they can use the results to explore careers. Students interested in taking it need to sign up with Mrs. Ochoa in the College & Career Center. Since it is being given during school hours, a prearranged absence form must be signed by the students teachers. The student picks a period to come to the Library to discover where their score can lead them.

Career Technical Education (CTE)

Hundreds of thousands of California  young people get their start each year in exciting and rewarding careers through secondary Career Technical Education (CTE) courses. Whether students plan to further their education in community colleges, technical schools, or four-year colleges and universities, receive on the job training, or pursue careers in the military, secondary Career Technical Education can be the first step in a pathway toward productive employment and citizenship.  

The mission of Career Technical Education is to help empower students for effective participation in an international economy as world-class workers and citizens. CTE programs are designed to contribute to the broad educational achievement of students, including basic skills such as reading, writing, and mathematics, as well as to their ability to work independently and as part of a team, think creatively and solve problems, and utilize technology.

For more information on Career Technical Education, visit the LUSD Technical Academy Website: or you may contact a school counselor.

The Work Permit Request must be completely filled out and then brought to the Registrar's Office for processing. This will usually take up to 2 days to process. Once the Work Permit is complete, you must pick up your completed WORK PERMIT and submit it to your employer for their records.
