Career Center

FAFSA - Seniors if you are planning to apply for FREE money for post high school ​education you need to complete the FAFSA.  The money is NOW available to apply for.  If you have questions or need help with your FAFSA sign up for the financial aid help night on Oct 18th.  Sign ups are online now! Check the Senior Page.

Senior Parent Night is tonight.  .  Event is from 6-8pm.  Senior Parents will obtain information on current and post high school information.  Check the Senior page for more information.

The Career Center has many guests throughout the year, especially college reps during these first few months of school.  These opportunities are provided for students to meet with someone who has the answers to all your questions about a specific school, post high school education option or career.  Always remember to check with your teacher before coming to the Career Center.  These guests pay attention to which students attend their presentation, so it’s always a good idea to come meet the representative if you can.  The calendar is updated often, add the OHS Career Center google calendar to your planner to keep up with the schedule and plan ahead to attend the presentations you are most interested in learning about.  (Boelts/Harper)
