Attention all seniors and parents: The Armed Service Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) will be administered on February 23, 2016 from 8:30-11:30 AM, Atlanta Ga.
What is the ASVAB Test? The ASVAB is not just a passport test to get into the military but is a great tool to discover future careers. Many students in the 12th grade do not know what they want to major in at college or the career path they want to take. The ASVAB can be used to help aid in the “What am I going to do?” This is a battery of tests identifying the knowledge and skill level in the areas of verbal, math, science and technical skills including electronics, mechanical comprehension, and auto shop information.
Why Take The ASVAB? Those students struggling to decide on a college major, the type of technical training they will need, or the job that will best suit them, will benefit from taking the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB). It helps you identify your different skills and competencies. It measures potential to learn and perform in certain career areas.
Who administers the test? A specially trained testing administrator is provided by the Armed Forces to administer the ASVAB test at Georgia Cyber Academy in Atlanta.
Who takes this test? Seniors are invited to take this test. Limited space available.
Is there a cost to take the test? No cost. All materials needed are provided.
Taking the ASVAB DOES NOT mean you MUST join Armed Services

GCA has been assigned a new CEEB code. The old code (110-144) will remain active for us to receive scores; however, it is imperative that students begin using the new code as soon as possible. Under our new code we are a Level II school, therefore we can administer all college board exams.
Why did GCA apply for and receive a new CEEB code?
Georgia Cyber Academy officially started as a standalone charter school as of the 2014-2015 school year. This was the first year for the independent Georgia Cyber Academy Board governing the school and for official recognition from the State of Georgia as a standalone school and Local Education Agency (LEA). In addition to the launch as a new school, GCA hired a new High School Principal and pioneered a new instructional model and grading policy for the 2014-2015 school year, never before implemented in the state of Georgia.
Prior to the 2014-2015 school year, Georgia Cyber Academy was a program of the Odyssey School, a standalone charter school in Newnan, GA, which does not offer High School grades, and was overseen by their “Brick & Mortar” focused Board of Directors for the local school. As all of GCA’s state accountability and assessment data starts new with the 2014-2015 school year (and earlier data remains with Odyssey School), our new CEEB code allows us to accurately and consistently reflect our Educational Testing Service (ETS) testing data as well.
The Achievement Level Descriptors for the new Algebra I and Geometry EOC measures have been posted to the GADOE website; the Achievement Level Descriptors for Coordinate Algebra and Analytic Geometry have been updated to reflect the Georgia Standards of Excellence that are used as the basis of instruction this school year. Note that the 2014-2015 Achievement Level Descriptors have been posted for those two courses, based on the CCGPS, for interpretative purposes.
Under Parent Resources, there are two new brochures designed to help parents understand the Individual Student Reports. These resources are labeled ‘Parent’s Guide to EOG Score Report’ and ‘Parent’s Guide to EOC Score Report.’
