  1. Neighborhood Program (Grades K-5) offers a strong academic curriculum based on state academic content standards in a community setting. Students are assigned to neighborhood elementary schools according to home addresses. The district determines the boundaries for each neighborhood school.
  2. Cincinnati Gifted Academy (CGA) serves gifted students in grades 3-6 throughout the Cincinnati Public School District. Students eligible for the Cincinnati Gifted Academy have the following gifted markers:
  • Rank at the Superior Cognitive level on a cognitive abilities test, or
  • Score at the 95th percentile or higher in two of the following subjects on the Terra Nova or other standardized achievement test: Reading, Math, Social Studies, Science. One of the two subjects must be either Math or Reading.

Community Learning Centers

For our schools to transform, our communities must be revitalized. For our communities to revitalize, our schools must be transformed. They are dependent on each other and Community Learning Centers are the link.

What is a Community Learning Center (CLC)?

Schools and the communities they serve are closely linked. Seldom does one succeed without the success of the other. That's why our CLCs support student achievement, enrich and revitalize communities, and maximize the community's return on their financial investment.

We are very proud to be a CLC and a neighborhood anchor. We strive to go beyond academics to focus on the whole child by serving as a hub for community services that are available to all students, their families and the entire community. We are able to offer a variety services thanks to the collaboration and support of our many partners and the committed community of Hyde Park.

To learn more about the services available at our school or how your company or organization can become a CLC partner or volunteer, please contact us.
