Students interested in engineering technologies should go to Orrville High School from 5-7:30 p.m.

Students interested in the agricultural industry and FFA can explore the new agribusiness and production program.

Some college, university and career-technical school partners as well as military, business and industry representatives will be in the commons to answer questions about colleges and advanced training. Additional information about college credit, certification or licensure opportunities will be available from career-technical instructors. Student organizations will have displays describing their activities.

Academic teachers will provide information about a comprehensive offering of academics. Some academic courses offer college credit. Light refreshments will be available in the commons.

School counselors will answer questions about the application process, and the Extra Help Area will be open with information related to the career center’s Extra Help programs.
