    The Lorain County JVS Open House on January 28th was a huge success with hundreds of prospective students and their families touring the campus, speaking with instructors, students, support staff, and alumni and participating in demonstrations and hands-on activities.

    JVS staff looks forward to seeing parents and family members, especially because they will help the student with the decision to enroll at the Lorain County JVS.

    The Open House gave visitors a close-up view of over 23 career technical programs in the areas of Building Trades, Manufacturing/Engineering, Business/Marketing, Culinary, Community Service/Healthcare, and Transportation.  

    JVS alumni who also came out to the Open House, spoke to students and parents about what they experienced while attending the school district.

    Jairo Cabrera, Lorain County JVS 2001 Masonry Trades program alum, is currently a Field Representative for the Cleveland Bricklayers Union Local 5 and shared how the JVS allowed him to develop a tool that he will have with him for life. “When I entered my apprenticeship program, I was advanced in my class versus other students. The JVS provided me with the tools and knowledge I needed to succeed.”  

    Justin Layne, 2017 alumni of the Heating and Air Conditioning program, said that making friends with like-minded students made the JVS an excellent experience for him. “I enjoyed the comradery that you build in your program with people that are learning the same skills you are and who have the same interests as well.”  

    The JVS Adult Career Center staff was on hand to register adult students for spring semester classes and talk with adults interested in changing careers or upgrading their skills.  

    Enrollment for high school programs is currently going on now.
