 The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is the agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that leads public health efforts to advance the behavioral health of the nation. The main goal of SAMHSA is to make sure that people with, or affected by, or at risk for mental health and substance use conditions receive care, thrive and achieve well-being. I believe they have one of the most comprehensive websites for mental health care and drug abuse care that I have ever explored. I hope you will take a look at their website (SAMHSA.gov)  a ..read more

Help at Christmas Time

 People often talk about the holiday blues or feeling depressed around the holiday season. There is a reason for this. Television, radio and advertisements try to make it feel like everyone is having a "hallmark" type of Thanksgiving or Christmas. If we aren't celebrating like they are on TV, then something must be wrong. If you have been watching any of the movies on the Hallmark channel, you will notice a certain theme. It seems like it is always snowing and people are taking sleigh rides through beautiful parks that are all lit up with Christmas lights. The Christmas music is playing ..read more

Vantage is allowed to send two students each month to their meetings. It is a great opportunity for the students to network with a wide variety of business professionals and gain a vast amount of knowledge. The students will also be eligible to apply for a four year sc ..read more

Fall Sports Picture Day

 Today we celebrated our fall sport athletes. This is a tradition we have done around Vantage for quite some time now. We ask all students who participate in any fall sport at their home school to wear their jerseys during the school day. Mrs. Owens also invites them all down to the commons area for a group picture. As you can see by today's picture, we have quite a large group of athletes that attend Vantage Career Center this year. We had 123 (I think I counted correctly) student athletes that showed up for the picture and we know there are others who may have missed. What a tremendous ..read more

Tomorrow, September 9th is our Student Appreciation Day. This is such an exciting day around campus with so many activities going on in the afternoon. Vantage has always used this day to let our students know how much we appreciate them and the fact that they chose Vantage Career Center for their final two years of school. I truly hope that each student here has felt that they are really appreciated by all of our faculty and staff. As I have said before, we realize how hard this was for so many of you to leave familiar and comfortable situations at your home school and select Vantage for your ..read more

 Did you know that each year about $80 million goes to waste because people don't fill out the FAFSA. That's right, $80 million throughout the United States just sits there because student's didn't bother to fill out the FAFSA. So, what is the FAFSA? FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid. This is the form you will fill out to get federal financial aid for college and post-secondary training. It may also help you qualify for financial aid from the state of Ohio and at the college of your choice. The form is free, but it could save you thousands of dollars. Please do not ..read more

 Just a couple of weeks ago, Vantage Career Center was honored to have the "911 Memorial Car Tour" drive through our parking lot, escorted by the Sheriffs department. If you are not familiar with the Memorial Car Tour, let me explain briefly. Kevyn Major Howard, who is best known for his role as "Rafterman" in the movie "Full Metal Jacket" wanted a way to honor the fallen heroes of 911. Kevyn stated that in this country we always say "never forget our heroes", so he wanted to make sure that we never do forget the heroes of 911. Kevyn started the tour about ten years ago to honor these her ..read more

 Today we allowed our Fall Sport athletes to wear their jerseys and come down to the commons for a group picture. It is always amazing to see how many student athletes we have each year. As you can see by the picture, the number keeps getting bigger and bigger. I believe the reason is that students from their home schools realize that they can attend Vantage and also play sports or be involved in band, cheerleading and other activities. Vantage will do everything and anything to accommodate these students so that they still feel a part of their home school. I myself try to attend some of ..read more
