Mentorship – The Mentorship program at the Olentangy Academy allows OA's STEM seniors to explore career options by mentoring with professionals in the community during the school day. Students are able to participate in 2 placements in career areas of their choice throughout the school year following in either a bio-medical or an engineering track. Mentoring can be scheduled in the morning or afternoon and is 4 hours weekly. During the mentorship, students learn first-hand about career interests, develop professionalism and employability skills, apply 21st-century skills, learn to balance their responsibilities, and set goals for their future. The STEM Mentorship program provides opportunities to help students make better decisions about their lives.
