Dohn and OMJ partnering for adult high school program

Dohn Community High School is now partnering with OhioMeansJobs Cincinnati-Hamilton County to offer on-site education for people trying to complete high school.

Dohn’s “22 + Adult Diploma Program” is now operating out of the OhioMeansJobs center at 1916 Central Parkway. Two teachers work at OMJ Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This innovative program is offered – at no cost to the student – to anyone 22 or older. 

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.
