Military Path

  • While military jobs vary in terms of responsibility, each is essential to accomplishing the overall mission of defending our country. It’s also important to note that about 85 percent of these roles do not involve direct combat.

    We invite you to explore these careers, learn about compensation and pay, and discover how the skills you learn in the Military can help prepare you for civilian employment afterward.

    Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB)

    The Department of Defense introduced the ASVAB in 1968. It was originally designed to predict future academic and occupational success in military occupations. However, extensive research indicates the ASVAB assesses academic ability and predicts success in a wide variety of occupations.  

    Current minimum scores for each branch of the military are:

    • Air Force—31
    • Army—31
    • Coast Guard—36
    • Marine Corps—31
    • National Guard—31
    • Navy—31

    Scores posted on August 28, 2023. 

    Recruiters often change every few years, and there are different recruiters for different high schools. Please reach out to your College and Career Counselor for more information about the recruiters that serve your school.
