College and Career Opportunities Day
April 19, 2017
On Wednesday, April 19, 2017, all seniors will have the opportunity to experience Merrillville High School’s annual College and Career Opportunities Day. Seniors will be allowed to spend the day experiencing college and career activities by visiting a college, job shadowing, and completing college and/or career research. All activities can be completed off campus; however, please make sure that you spend at least 4 – 6 hours participating in the event.
If a student decides not to participate in the College and Career Opportunities Day activities, they must attend school or they will be considered truant for the day as stated in the Merrillville High School Handbook.
We believe that this opportunity supports the Mission of Merrillville High School which is to foster an environment whereby students, faculty, parents, and the community interact to provide educational opportunities, empowering students to become productive citizens and lifelong learners.
In order to be excused from attendance for the day, seniors needed to have returned their permission slips to student services by Monday, April 17, 2017.
