Dohn High School

High School education and credit recovery options for urban youth and those 22 years and older who want a high school diploma. We succeed in graduating the high school students that other area schools are unable to educate. Our demographics are 98% African American, 95% at or below the poverty line, 93% single-parent households. Our resilient students create community among themselves and are lifting one another up with success.

Students who have dropped out of high school before completing all credits needed for graduation can recover missing credits, working at their own pace, and with a schedule that is flexible to accommodate work and family requirements. Our Success Academy students study with other students their age and are guided by teachers and tutors dedicated to their academic and life success. Success Academy classes are offered at three locations:
Melrose Campus in Avondale
North Campus in Roselawn
South Campus, Downtown, Cincinnati

Dohn’s Young Men’s Academy represents the visionary leadership of our Director, Ramone Davenport, and his commitment to the full-spectrum success of our students. In 2017-2018, Dohn opened the Fitness Academy where our freshman and sophomore students are educated. At this location, 4100 Reading Road, students receive 90-minutes of physical fitness education, including physical fitness classes and a physical fitness elective of the student’s choosing. These electives include gym, dance, boxing and weight room workouts, all under the supervision of our physical fitness educators.

Healthy nutrition is another focus of our Fitness Academy, with nutrition and health classes as part of the academic curriculum, and a total banning of all unhealthy snacks for students.

The Fitness Academy is where our Athletic Department is based. There is a regulation-size basketball court on the first floor of this building, as well as areas for track and a gym. Dohn holds school assemblies in this beautifully renovated location, that also houses our vertical tower garden for indoor, winter gardening by our Garden Club.

During the Academic Year, freshman and sophomore boys are educated at the Fitness Academy, while freshman and sophomore girls are educated at our Main Campus, 608 E. McMillan Street, Cincinnati, Ohio, 45206.

Keeping Teen Moms in School (KTMIS) alternative academic path at Dohn Community High School is one of the few programs in the country that offer a supportive, academic community for pregnant teens and teen moms. Our non-traditional school uniquely meets the emotional and academic needs of our student moms and offers many opportunities for them to graduate on time, and step onto a career path that is aligned with innate skills and interests.

One of the most exciting parts of KTMIS is that our teen moms have access to an onsite learning Center for their infants and toddlers. The young moms, therefore, can check on their babies during the 8:30-1:00 school day. Likewise, several days a week, the teen moms bring their babies back to the academic classroom for a twenty-minute mother/child reading session to encourage proactive reading inside and outside the classroom.

Besides the traditional high school curriculum and onsite childcare, KTMIS offers transportation to and from school, parenting classes, early childhood literacy training, and job placement services. KTMIS also partners with Cradle Cincinnati, the Public Library of Cincinnati, Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank, and many others.

Students 22 years of age or older earn a fully accredited high school diploma. There is no cost to the student. Dohn Community High School’s 22+ Adult Diploma Program is one of twenty such programs in Ohio and the sole provider in Cincinnati. This innovative program is offered, at no cost to the student, to all persons 22 years of age or older who wish to earn a fully accredited high school diploma. The 22+ program honors all previously earned credits, state testing results, and may award credit for work experience. Students must fulfill the requirements of the State of Ohio that were in effect at the time they entered ninth grade. This allows learners to complete coursework that they were unable to finish during high school without redundancy. To ensure a smooth transition into college or career pathways, both guidance and support are personalized for each individual graduate, empowering them to realize their dreams as they exit the program. Between our winter and spring 2018 graduations, Dohn’s 22+ Adult Education Program has graduated 298 students.
