Career Technical Education

OHS Partners with Centerville, Fairmont

Oakwood, Centerville and Kettering High Schools participate in a Career Tech compact to provide career-technical education opportunities to students at the three schools. 

As a result of this partnership, OHS students are eligible to apply for programs offered at CHS and FHS.

Class of 2023 Introduction

Members of the Class of 2023 participated in a Zoom webinar Thursday, ​Jan. 14​ to learn about Career Education programs available at Kettering Fairmont (FHS) and Centerville High Schools (CHS). 

Students will need to apply to programs they are interested in and the process is somewhat selective.  There are usually two spots in every program for Oakwood students.  However, at times exceptions have been made.
