The Counseling Center offers several tools for students to use as they begin to explore potential careers and/or fields of study.
Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Sciences
The Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Sciences (PGSS) is an opportunity for students in their junior year of high school to explore the sciences in a hands-on, residential summer program, hosted by Carnegie Mellon University.
Allegheny Intermediate Unit Apprenticeship Program
The Allegheny Intermediate Unit's Apprenticeship Program consists of half-day or full-day learning experiences once a month over a six or seven month period during the school year. Students meet and work with professionals who share their experience, expertise, and enthusiasm for what they do for a living.
Throughout the year OLSH alumni and other professionals speak to small groups of students interested in pursuing a career in the same field.
