Great Oaks campuses hold Parent Preview Day for 2017

Each year, 8th and 10th graders at the 36 school districts served by Great Oaks have the chance to visit the nearest campus, explore a variety of careers, and spend time in the professional labs.  Before they do, though, parents are invited to see what their kids will see.

The four Great Oaks campuses will hold Parent Preview Day on Wednesday, September 20.  Parents of area students will be able to stop by to visit the labs and talk with staff.

Great Oaks spokesperson Jon Weidlich said the open houses are all about myth-busting.  “Many people still have an outdated 20th century impression of career technical education,” said Weidlich.  “They don’t know about the state-of-the-art labs, the instructors who come to us after successful careers in their professional field, or the fact that over 90% of our graduates earn college credit while they’re still in high school.”
