College Fair and Career Connections

Annual Summit County Private High School College / Tech. Fair 

Every fall, St. Vincent-St. Mary hosts an annual college fair in collaboration with the Ohio Association for College Admission Counseling (OACAC). In light of the coronavirus, the OACAC has decided to cancel all OACAC sponsored and affiliated College Fairs for the fall.

To help students and parents, the OACAC has created a Virtual College Exploration Program for this fall. The program will run from mid-September to early November and will feature different colleges and universities from across the country. More information can be found here: Virtual College Exploration.

Career Connections Fair

When: Thursday, November 7, 2019 from 7:30-9:30 am
Where: LeBron James Arena
Why: To help students gain understanding and perspective of different career paths and what they may be interested in studying in college.

The St. Vincent-St. Mary High School Advancement Team and Counseling Department have teamed up to host Career Connections every fall for all students grades 9-12. Over 100 professionals in various fields are invited to attend this event and share their knowledge with our students. This is a great opportunity for our students to make connections that could lead to possible job shadowing and opportunities in the future.

The students are prepped prior to the Career Connections on what to wear, questions to ask, what professionals will be attending, etc. Each student is required to write a one page paper for their English class on the career they were most interested in.
