High School

The Tri-County Career Center, located in Nelsonville, Ohio, accepts students from high schools in Athens, Perry and Hocking counties. Junior and senior students are enrolled in one of eighteen different programs. These programs get students job-ready, and for those continuing their educations, college-ready. Over 90 percent of Career Center graduates are either working or continuing their educations. Currently, the Career Center has graduates at Hocking College, Ohio University and many other one-, two-, and four-year schools across the region.

Another option that some Career Center students choose is military service . Graduates are eligible for specialized placement in the armed forces because of the quality, highly skilled training they receive.

The Career Center continues to upgrade its programs and has recently added new state-of-the-art equipment in many of the labs. Students have access to iPads, laptops and interactive white boards in many programs. Career Center students are working with some of the finest equipment available as they prepare for success.

      Project SEARCH is a one-year high school transition program which provides training and education leading to employment for individuals with disabilities.  Each student applies and is accepted to the program through a selection committee process.  All students must be eligible for services with the Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities. Students must be seniors who have already met their graduation requirements.


      Managers at the internship sites work with the Project SEARCH instructor and job coaches to support the students.  Students get continual feedback from the internship manager, co-workers, and Project SEARCH staff.  Students end their day by reflection, problem solving, planning, and journaling their key learnings.  The ultimate goal upon completion of the program is competitive employment utilizing the skills learned on the internships and throughout the program.
