Will the school charge tuition?
Cincinnati Classical Academy will be tuition-free, as are other public schools. The majority of funding for school operations will be provided by the State of Ohio, although at a lower rate than for non-charter public schools. Grants, philanthropy, and private donations are needed to bridge the gap.
Where will the school be located?
The school’s location has not yet been determined. The Board is working with multiple partners in real-estate, construction, education, and local municipalities to identify the best location and facility strategy to ensure the school’s success. The goal is to locate close to major highways and thoroughfares to maximize accessibility for all.
Who can enroll in Cincinnati Classical Academy?
