Dohn Community High School is now partnering with Hamilton County OhioMeansJobs. Dohn’s “22 + Adult Diploma Program” is now operating out of the OhioMeansJobs center at 1916 Central Parkway. Nonni Wright, Dohn Site Director, expressed their excitement at the partnership and is very pleased with their new location. Teachers, Kenneth Anderson and Anthony Wyatt, are in residence full time Monday thru Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The 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 as there is no cut-off age.
Dohn has high school locations in Walnut Hills, Roselawn, and the Reading Road Armory. Their adult program has locations at OhioMeansJobs, Walnut Hills, Price Hill, and the newly opened Dayton location in the Business Tech High School.
The 22 + Adult Diploma Program serves the adult population for those working to earn a fully accredited high school diploma. They follow a credit recovery process. High school transcripts are obtained and an individualized plan for completion is created. The program honors all previously earned credits and 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.
Approximately 90% of the participants are employed while working toward their diploma. Approximately 200 students will graduate from Dohn with a high school diploma this month.
