Scottsdale Community College will be in the College and Career Center at Arcadia High School on December 4th to register students IN PERSON for Spring Dual Enrollment.

Students should have received a copy of second semester schedule on Wednesday during 2nd hour. Please review your schedule and if you need to make a change, please see or email your counselor. You may only change your schedule for the following reasons:
  • The wrong class is in your schedule.
  • Teacher listed is different from 1st semester teacher for that period.
  • You failed a class and need to retake the course (primarily seniors).
  • You need to change from Honors or AP to a regular class.

ASVAB Test
Sign up by Dec 13th, Test on Jan 17th at 8:00 am
While the ASVAB is a military career assessment tool, it can also give non-military bound students insight into their strengths and abilities, making it useful for career planning.  Because this is an aptitude test it doesn't just tell you what you are currently good at, it will also tell you what you may be good at learning. You may know nothing about electronics but your scores may say you have the ability to learn electronics.

Students interested in testing should stop by the College and Career Center and see Mrs. Stauff to sign up for the ASVAB Career Exploration Program.  There is no cost to you for taking this assessment. The test will take place on January 17th at 8:00 am in Mt. O (you will be excused from classes)  Sign up by December 13th. Do not miss out on this great FREE opportunity! Want to know more about the test? Read this:  https://www.petersons.com/blog/taking-asvab-prepares-you-for-career-planning-or-military-enlistment/
