Great Oaks announces open houses


Submitted story



Area parents and high school freshmen and sophomores will have the chance to get a first-hand look at more than 30 career majors available for high school juniors and seniors at the four Great Oaks Career Campuses during upcoming open houses.

Great Oaks Director of Student Services Nancy Mulvey said the annual open house is an important step.

“Families tell us that they didn’t really understand just what Great Oaks has to offer until they visited a campus,” said Mulvey. “The state-of-the-art labs, hands-on learning, opportunities for a future career, college options — it all made sense once they saw the school and talked to teachers, students and community members.”

About half of Great Oaks graduates go directly to college.

Social distancing requirements mean that open houses at Great Oaks campuses for prospective students and their families will be different this year, with a combination of online and in-person options.
