ASVAB 

Senate Bill 1843 authorizes that each school year, each school district is required to provide students in grades 10 through 12 with an opportunity to take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test. The ASVAB is the most widely used multiple-aptitude test battery in the world. It is not just a test for students interested in the military. As an aptitude test, the ASVAB measures your academic strengths, weaknesses, and potential for future success. Contact your campus’ College and Career Facilitator for more information.

KATY ISD COLLEGE ATHLETE RECRUITING SEMINAR 

On Wednesday, February 28, 2024, 6-8 pm @ the Leonard Merrell Center, we will be hosting our first-ever Katy ISD College Athlete Recruiting Seminar. This event's purpose is to provide information to parents and athletes about the recruiting process. The event will cover the difference between each level of play for all sports, how scholarships are impacted at each level, what you can do to create your “athletic” resume, and what the role is for parents in recruitment. There will be a chance to ask our presenter Todd Kelly questions following the event. This session will be broken into two parts that will focus on the high school process and the Junior High process. The QR code on the flyer for the event will allow you to RSVP for that night. We look forward to seeing you there!
