The Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) Sacramento Field Office invites interested juniors to apply to attend its Spring 2016 Sacramento FBI Teen Academy on Friday, March 18, 2016, at FBI Sacramento field office headquarters in North Sacramento. A limited number of applicants will spend a day at the FBI’s local headquarters engaged in classroom discussions and hands-on experiences involving the evidence response team, bomb techs, and auto shop to better understand how the FBI serves their communities, and are better prepared to mentor their peers.
The deadline for applications is February 12, and includes an application form, an essay, and a signed release form. Use the links below to access the application. There is no cost to attend the FBI Teen Academy and the Sacramento FBI Citizens Academy Alumni Association generously sponsors lunch, morning and afternoon snacks, and other items for all students in attendance.
Students with questions should contact Ms. Price in the counseling office.

The ASVAB test will be administered at River City High on Friday, February 19 from 8:20 to 11:30 am. The deadline for registering to take test is February 12. See Mrs. Dellatorre in the Career Center to sign up. There is no cost to take the test.
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is a multiple choice test administered by the US Military that is used to determine qualification for enlistment in the Armed Forces. The test is a pen and pencil exam assessing general academic ability, college readiness, vocational and electronic knowledge, and even clerical skills. At River City it is offered to juniors and seniors. Although the test is administered by the military, it is not (and never has been) a requirement that a test-taker with a qualifying score enlist in the armed forces.
The ASVAB is one of the most reliable assessments of general student ability and may be useful for any student to see where their strengths and weaknesses are, not just those who are interested in the military. There is no obligation for students who take the test to enter the Armed Services, but they do have to agree to allow the results to be released to the different branches of the military. The military provides River City with a counseling report that is made available for each student ranking them by percentile in comparison with other Juniors and Seniors across the United States.
