The ASVAB Career Exploration Program is a widely used and respected career development program and test. The ASVAB will be available, free of charge to all Cherry Hill High School West students in grades 10-12 on Friday, January 11, 2019.
Developed by the Department of Defense, the ASVAB Career Exploration Program helps students to identify potential careers in both military and civilian arenas. Although the military uses this sort of testing to help identify occupational specialists, students who plan to attend college or technical school will also benefit from this program, as it helps them to focus their interests on relevant career paths.
An ASVAB representative will be at Cherry Hill West on Friday, January 11, 2019 to administer the test at 7:30 AM. Because the three hour test requires students to miss some of their classes, we are asking for parental permission prior to allowing your son or daughter to participate. Please have your son or daughter see their guidance counselor for a permission slip.
Please note that signed permission slips must be submitted to Guidance no later than January 8, 2019, and students must report on time to the exam.

The Board of Education on March 13, 2018 adopted a Resolution calling for New Jersey Commissioner of Education Dr. Lamont Repollet and New Jersey Governor Philip Murphy either to put forth a spending plan that fully funds the School Funding Reform Act (SFRA) or, in the event the SFRA cannot be fully funded, make sure the funds available for state aid to schools be fairly and proportionally divided per the SFRA. The resolution further resolved that if full redistribution is not possible this year, that sufficient additional monies be allocated to Underadequacy Aid to close the adequacy gap. A copy of the resolution has been present to the New Jersey Commissioner of Education, the Governor of New Jersey, the State Senator and the State Assemblypersons from Legislative District 6, and the Mayor and Council President of Cherry Hill.
