Imagine attending Ohio’s only all-male public academy, a high school where you start each day in a morning session of encouragement and accountability, and where there are mentors on call 24-7.
This is a progressive, but disciplined, academy with dual enrollment at Cuyahoga Community College and Cleveland State University, where a partnership with HealthCorps provides nutritional support for each student, and where renowned speakers such as educator and author Stedman Graham appear regularly.
Ginn Academy focuses on higher education – beginning college tours as early as the freshman year – and careers, with the Career Center providing advice and lining up jobs for interested students each summer at the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District.
Ginn Academy will add a center where students, alumni, their families and even the community can take online assessments of their interests and aptitudes, train for jobs and apply or plan for postsecondary education.
