Ohio Hi-Point invites sophomores and parents to ‘LIFE at Hi-Point’

BELLEFONTAINE- Ohio Hi-Point Career Center is hosting an Open House for sophomores from the district’s 14 partner schools at Ohio Hi-Point on Thursday, Nov. 14, 2013 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Sophomores and parents are invited to ‘LIFE at Hi-Point’ to explore the career and academic opportunities available to students. Speak with instructors, do hands-on activities in labs and learn about gaining college credits to colleges and universities around the state.

“This year’s Open House is themed around the board game LIFE,” remarked communications coordinator, Kelsey Giesler, “As they explore the campus, students will earn LIFE cards and the more cards and tokens students receive, the more prizes and raffles they could enter to win.”

In addition to career programs and academics, current students will be featuring a variety of activities and career-technical student organizations (CTSOs), the technology department will provide information on internet safety, and the guidance department will help answer any scheduling or enrollment questions. 

“We want to showcase just how dynamic the opportunities at Hi-Point are,” continued Giesler, “we have over 20 career programs on main campus, dual-enrollment and honors courses, a CTSO student council and so much more.

From 4 to 7 p.m., the Open House will showcase what a potential career or academic future could look like for sophomores and their parents. Planning ahead for an education and career is a big decision, so we ultimately want parents to be a part of that decision process for students. It’s a great night to have the crucial information available to ask questions and see the campus.”

Refreshments and food items will be available for a donation to help raise funds for the OHP student scholarship fund.

Ohio Hi-Point’s partner school districts include: Benjamin Logan, Bellefontaine, Graham, Indian Lake, Kenton, Marysville, Mechanicsburg, Ridgemont, Riverside, Triad, Upper Scioto Valley, Urbana, Waynesfield-Goshen and West Liberty-Salem.
