OHIO Lancaster to offer evening classes at Pickerington North High School

October 27, 2022

(Lancaster) Ohio University Lancaster will offer four evening courses at Pickerington North at the start of the spring 2023 term, for both Ohio University and high school students enrolled in college-credit plus.

The partnership between the high school and university bridges an educational gap that currently exists within the Pickerington community and connects residents with nationally recognized programming at convenient times and location. The inaugural coursework includes general education classes in communications, english, philosophy and psychology. Area high school students will be able to obtain credit as part of Ohio University Lancaster’s College Credit Plus program and Ohio University students will have a chance to continue studies related to their field.

“Pickerington Local School District is excited to continue our partnership with Ohio University Lancaster and enrich our students’ opportunities through continuing education,” Dr. Chris Briggs, superintendent of Pickerington Local School District, said.

Ohio University Lancaster has sought several new and innovative ways to approach educational offerings in Fairfield County. Strong partnerships with local leaders, area business, and organizations are enabling OHIO Lancaster to expand their reach beyond the traditional campus.

“We are excited to pursue an exciting new partnership with the Pickerington Local School District for Ohio University to expand its degree courses at the high school,” Ohio University Lancaster Dean of Campus and Community Relations Jarrod Tudor said. “In addition, the Fairfield County Workforce Center will continue to host Ohio University in efforts to prepare citizens for jobs in manufacturing and skilled trades.”
