Welcoming Two New Schools to Our Network!


We are excited to be opening two schools in our network for this school year.


Franklinton Prep High School, located in Columbus's Franklinton neighborhood, opened this month with over 150 students. School director Michael Mintos and his team moved from Central High School into the historic Franklinton building over the summer.


"After working with students in the Franklinton neighborhood for the past few years, its nice to have a building that will allow us to really meet their needs. I'm especially excited to be able to build up our workforce development program so more of our kids have the chance graduate with a diploma and the industry credentials they need to get a good job."


This is the second year of the charter for Cypress High School which relocated to Mansfield, Ohio this summer. Dr. Danielle Kelly joined the Cypress High School team as the director.


"This has definitely been an interesting and challenging year for most people. After moving across the country, living through a pandemic while opening a new school, I feel ready and excited to move onto the next chapter. Being the Director of Cypress High School is a dream come true. I can't think of a better way to pay it forward by taking what I have learned as an educator, world traveler and mother and apply that knowledge toward the success of the school and student body. I hope to share my experience in order to expand educational and career opportunities that support student growth and success through compassion and diligence. 2020-2021 School Year, Here We Come!"
