Military Enlistment Statement
Students attending Excel High School fall into the following categories; Fulltime, Part-time, and adult high school diploma students.
If you are planning to join the military, you need to be aware that there are some very strict and specific educational guidelines that must be followed to be eligible for enlistment. Excel High School is ranked as a Tier 1 high school. This is the same status as traditional public high schools.

Students who score 50 or above on the Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT), will now receive Tier 1 enlistment priority.
Full-time and part-time students must be enrolled for a minimum of 90-days, or one full semester to meet attendance guidelines. In addition to the 90-day attendance/enrollment requirement, a student can earn a 21 Standard High School Diploma or a 24-credit College Prep diploma to be eligible for enlistment.
The military wants stability, seat time, and committed students who can demonstrate that they have the discipline and motivation to do what's expected of them when assigned. The concept of a “fast-track” credential does not fully meet the U.S. Military’s enlistment expectations in this area. The best option is for students to complete the official high school diploma, which will qualify for Tier 1 enlistment.
Please contact the Excel High School counseling office if you are considering enlisting in the military at 1.800.620.3844.
NOTE: A high school diploma does not guarantee enlistment. The military reviews a number of factors including academic history, good scores on the ASVAB test, results from recruiter interviews and pre-enlistment physicals, and many other factors that may play a part in the enlistment process.
