The ASVAB Career Exploration Program

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.

Students can visit www.asvabprogram.com or www.march2success.com in order to practice for the exam.

CHPS Earns Placement on 9th Annual AP District Honor Roll
CHPS Earns Placement on 9th Annual AP District Honor Roll

The Cherry Hill Public Schools is one of 373 school districts in the U.S. and Canada being honored by the College Board with placement on the 9th Annual AP® District Honor Roll. To be included on the 9th Annual Honor Roll, CHPS had to, since 2016, increase the number of students participating in AP while also increasing or maintaining the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher. Reaching these goals shows that this district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for AP.

National data from 2018 show that among American Indian/Alaska Native, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander students with a high degree of readiness for AP, only about half are participating. The first step to getting more of these students to participate is to give them access. Courses must be made available, gatekeeping must stop, and doors must be equitably opened. The Cherry Hill Public School District is committed to expanding the availability of AP courses among prepared and motivated students of all backgrounds.

"Success in Advanced Placement is a combination of students' own motivation and the opportunities educators provide for them," said Trevor Packer, senior vice president of AP and Instruction at the College Board. "I'm inspired by the teachers and administrators in this district who have worked to clear a path for more students of all backgrounds to earn college credit during high school."

Helping more students learn at a higher level and earn higher AP scores is an objective of all members of the AP community, from AP teachers to district and school administrators to college professors.

Inclusion in the 9th Annual AP District Honor Roll is based on a review of three years of AP data, from 2016 to 2018, looking across 38 AP Exams, including world language and culture. The following criteria were used.

Districts must:

  • Increase participation/access to AP by at least 4% in large districts, at least 6% in medium districts, and at least 11% in small districts;
  • Increased or maintained the percentage of American Indian/Alaska Native, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander students taking exams and increased or maintained the percentage of American Indian/Alaska Native, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander students scoring 3+ on at least one AP Exam; and
  • Improve or maintain performance levels when comparing the 2018 percentage of students scoring a 3 or higher to the 2016 percentage, unless the district has already attained a performance level at which more than 70% of its AP students earn a 3 or higher.
  • The College Board also has recognized the Cherry Hill Public Schools for achieving its outcomes among an AP student population in which 30% or more are underrepresented minority students (American Indian/Alaska Native, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander) and/or 30% or more are low-income students (students who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.
