Our College & Career Readiness Center is an integral component of the Guidance Department, and is the hub of post high school preparation for the school. It is a resource for information on everything from careers to colleges to scholarships.
Students can obtain information about careers, vocational schools, colleges, financial aid, and standardized testing. Students and their parents are encouraged to visit the Career Center often to take advantage of all of the resources it has to offer. The CCRC Liaison works with the students, parents, teachers, administrators, and the community.

Maryland College Application Campaign
The Maryland College Application Campaign (MCAC) is open to all high school students. The goal of the college campaign is to increase the number of first generation students, low-income students, unaccompanied youth, foster care youth, students with disabilities, students in the juvenile education system, and others underrepresented in higher education.
The college campaign provides hands-on assistance to high school students with the college application and FAFSA completion process, ensuring that each participating student submits at least one postsecondary application.
What is the ASVAB?
The ASVAB is an aptitude test developed and governed by the U. S. Department of Defense. The letters in the acronym stand for Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery. There are three different versions of the ASVAB, two of which the military uses for enlistment purposes only. The third, and most widely known, version is the Student ASVAB. It serves as a career exploration tool in addition to identifying military aptitude.
High schools all across the country administer the Student ASVAB to students in the 11th and 12th grades. Some colleges and vocational schools also administer the test. The U.S. military uses ASVAB scores to help determine eligibility for certain military occupations and to identify careers, both in and out of the military, which best fit a student's abilities.
The next ASVAB Test will be administed at Chopticon on March 29th, 2019 at 8:00 a.m.
