Natchitoches Parish Technical and Career Center: ASVAB Testing

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Your child will be participating in two assessments in the month of September, the iSTEEP and ASVAB Career Exploration Program (CEP). The iSTEEP is used for baseline data to determine academic growth. Your child will be assessed by Sept. 7.

The ASVAB CEP is a test best known for students who are interested in the military and would like to enlist in a specific branch such as the Reserves or National Guard. Even if your child is not interested in the military, this test can also assist in career exploration. This is a great opportunity for your child to explore different career and post-secondary options that best fits their interests. If your child is in the 12th grade he/she will test on Sept. 15, 11th grade will test Sept. 16, and 10th grade will test Sept. 17. Testing will begin promptly at 8 AM. If your child does not arrive at school on time, he/she will not be allowed to take the test.

It is vital that your child do their very best on both assessments. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the school and speak with myself or Mr. Benjamin.


Thank you,


Bobby Benjamin, NPTCC Principal


Chelsea Calhoun, NPTCC School Counselor
