California Colleges

The California College Guidance Initiative manages CaliforniaColleges.edu, the state of California’s official college and career planning platform, which is free to all California educators, students, and families.

The Initiative is a nonprofit, funded in part by the state of California, that partners with school districts across the state to advance local college and career readiness goals. Click here to learn more about the Initiative’s mission, goals, and approach.


No sign-in required:

You must sign in to CaliforniaColleges.edu as a high school student in order to take the below assessments. If you don’t have an account, create one for free:
The ASVAB is an opportunity for students to get an assessment of their academic ability and how that translates into real life occupations. The ASVAB is the assessment that the military utilizes to determine eligibility for the armed forces HOWEVER it is not only a military assessment. All seniors wishing to enlist in military service should see Miss.Angela in the Career Center and get signed up for the ASVAB test. (Other students who aren't enlisting can also take the ASVAB to find careers that would be a good match for them, too!) Testing usually takes about 2 hours.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, unfortunately we will not offer ASVAB testing at OHS. You can still take the ASVAB (Armed Forces Vocational Aptitude Battery) at MEPS in San Diego with a military recruiter or via a recruiter-sanctioned testing event. Contact Ms. Angela if you have further questions.

Use these free online databases to look up the nature and requirements of any career you are considering.
