Maplewood Career Center

Maplewood Mission Statement

"Great Careers Start Here"
Maplewood provides individuals with educational experiences that aid in personal growth
and the development of career/technical skills leading to graduation,
higher education, and/or employment.

Mogadore is a Career Technical School. Maplewood serves ten school districts in the Portage and Summit counties. There is no tuition charge for high school students from the participating school districts. However, some students will need to purchase tool kits or other special items for course work. A payment plan/financial aid is available so that programs are affordable for all families.  Admission into a Maplewood Career Center program is contingent upon the following factors:
    • You must be 16 years or older by October 1st of the current year 
    • You must have 7 credits or be granted a conditional acceptance plan if you are credit deficient
    • Mogadore academic requirements apply while you are attending Maplewood 
At Maplewood Career Center in Ravenna students can choose to pursue from the following programs for their junior and senior years:
Carpentry                 Computer-Aided Engineering                  Cosmetology         Criminal Justice                       Culinary Arts
Dental Assisting       Early Childhood Education                      Electricity               Electronics and Computer Technology

Students who attend Maplewood receive instruction in the remainder of their core curriculum courses in addition to receiving training in the program of their choice.  Mogadore students who attend Maplewood are still eligible to participate in extracurricular activities, like sports, clubs and other after school activities. Maplewood Career Center is a wonderful opportunity for students who are self-motivated and eager to learn a trade or craft.  Attending Maplewood provides students real work experiences and job training in specific fields. The skills that are learned here can help support students after they graduate from Mogadore by allowing them to earn money to help pay for college or pursue other plans.
