College and Career Decision Week April 30-May 3

College and Career Decision Week April 30-May 3

One of the most important decisions that any young adult will make is what he or she is doing after graduating from high school.

The goal of College and Career Decision Week is to celebrate and recognize LOHS seniors for making their post-secondary educational and career decisions.  

Lake Orion High School seniors will attend a wide variety of post-secondary educational institutions, including local community colleges, Michigan's public four-year universities, private and out-of-state colleges, trade and technical schools, military academies, and other opportunities.  Some students choose to enlist in the armed services or enter the workforce directly after high school.

LOHS wants to recognize ALL seniors who have made a commitment for their post-high school college and career choices.

College and Career Decision Week will take place at LOHS on Tuesday, April 30; Thursday, May 2; and Friday, May 3.  "College Decision Day" is a national movement on or around May 1 each spring.

Students are encouraged to bring their official college or military acceptance letter or job hiring documentation on any of these three days. 

Students are also encouraged to wear clothing representing their college or career choice (college shirts, hats, etc.) for this event. 

Students who have chosen a college or career, but who do not have their paperwork will still be able to participate.

There will be an official LOHS backdrop in the Commons during all lunches on these days.  Students will take a photo in front of the LOHS backdrop, and LOHS will publicize and celebrate students' decisions in a similar fashion to how student-athletes' collegiate decisions are made (albeit in a larger number of students).

Students or parents with questions should contact Associate Principal Kyle Meteyer, stop in to the LOHS Career Center, or contact their school counselor.
