  • Freshmen and sophomores benefit from exposure to this information so they know what to work toward.
  • Juniors should use this fair as an opportunity to make a list of schools and not wait until senior year to explore their options.
  • Seniors can ask about applications and make a good impression on admissions representatives. If it's possible they should dress professionally and come prepared with questions about their schools of interest. 

Students may find the list of schools attending outside room 236A starting in September (this list will continue to be updated as more schools sign up). Any questions? Contact Arica Zimmer at  

Career Connections Fair

When: Thursday, November 4, 2021 from 8:30-11:00 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.
