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.

Each of the campuses will have instructors and students on hand to talk with visitors and demonstrate the work being done in the career labs. Programs available include dental assisting, sports rehabilitation and therapy, construction, cosmetology, masonry, aviation maintenance, heating/ventilating and air conditioning, practical nursing, surgical technology, heavy equipment operations, commercial/residential electricity, robotics, animal science, equine (horse) studies, and more.
