College Credit

Upon meeting specific criteria, students have the opportunity to earn various types of college credit for career technical courses taken at Lorain County JVS. Students also have the opportunity to participate in Ohio's College Credit Plus program. College credit opportunities vary by program and are subject to change.

Student Organizations

Students are encouraged to become involved with the career-technical student organizations related to their programs, such as Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America. These organizations help develop leadership skills, cooperation, social interactions, and good citizenship. All members have opportunities to participate in regional, state, and national competitions to showcase their skills and earn college scholarships. Students who excel academically and have a commitment to community service may become a member of the National-Technical Honor Society.

Employment Resources

Strong partnerships between the JVS and business and industry help students gain work experience through work-based learning experiences, the JVS Summer Internship Program, and senior early job placement. The JVS is committed to helping successful graduates find employment in their career field.  A detailed explanation of the student eligibility requirements for these experiences is included in the student handbook.

The JVS maintains an online job board to help connect students and alumni to local employment opportunities.  The JVS website also hosts links to online resources for  labor market data, as well as statewide and national career information.
