Mt. Washington School Awarded Grant to Expand After-School Program


Mt. Washington School is the proud recipient of a 21st Century Community Learning Centers Grant, which will provide $850,000 over the next five years to enhance the school’s after-school program.

“For the past few years, we have been able to offer a free after-school enrichment program thanks to generous donations from our school partners,” said Deb Klein, principal. “Although the students love the program, we could only offer it a few days a week. This year, however, the tide has turned.”

The new grant allows Mt. Washington to expand its after-school program from three days a week to five days a week, and the program’s hours will be extended as well. Through the grant, Mt. Washington’s program will offer:

  • Literacy Lab 3D Printer Club
  • STEM Bicycle Club
  • Art
  • Yoga
  • Nature Club
  • Hand Bell Choir
  • Chorus
  • Drumming
  • Running Club
  • Tennis
  • Extended Care
  • Field Trips

Mt. Washington’s longtime Partner in Education, the University of Cincinnati, applied for the grant on the school’s behalf. The school was one of 107 to successfully earn the grant out of more than 300 applicants throughout Ohio.
