About the Auburn Career Center

Auburn Career Center is located on Auburn Road in Painesville Township. Its primary function is to provide vocational training to students who wish to learn a skill or trade, which will make them employable upon graduation. Fifteen two-year programs are available for junior and senior school students. In addition, several co-op training programs exist for students desiring on-the-job-training. Tech Prep programs are available in four areas: Allied Health Technology, Electronics Technology, Manufacturing Technology and Multi-Media Technology.

Students enrolled in courses at Auburn may enroll for their required academic classes at Perry High School. They will have four blocks of time to fill here at Perry each year. The exception to this rule would be available to the Cosmetology students only, who would take their academics at Auburn. Bus transportation is provided to Auburn Career Center for all vocational students.

Upon graduation, two-year vocational students are eligible to receive both a diploma from Perry High School and Vocational Skills Certificate from the State of Ohio.
