Junior Presentations - for the Class of 2022

Since we cannot be with you for an in-person Career Unit or Grade-Level Parent Night, the Counseling team, with the College & Career Center, created a series of presentations for you. These presentations were sent through Parent/Student Square on October 14, 2020. 
Scroll down to view the presentations we recommend for Juniors. You can click through the embedded slideshows, or you may choose to listen to the narrated versions, and hear helpful commentary from the ORHS Counseling team.
Also, check out our video vault, where you can view some of our favorite video resources for all grade levels.
