Young Men's Academy: 9th & 10th Grade
Dohn’s Young Men’s Academy represents the visionary leadership of our Director, Ramone Davenport, and his commitment to the full-spectrum success of our students. In 2017-2018, Dohn opened the Fitness Academy where our freshman and sophomore students are educated. At this location, 4100 Reading Road, students receive 90-minutes of physical fitness education, including physical fitness classes and a physical fitness elective of the student’s choosing. These electives include gym, dance, boxing and weight room workouts, all under the supervision of our physical fitness educators.
Healthy nutrition is another focus of our Fitness Academy, with nutrition and health classes as part of the academic curriculum, and a total banning of all unhealthy snacks for students.
The Fitness Academy is where our Athletic Department is based. There is a regulation-size basketball court on the first floor of this building, as well as areas for track and a gym. Dohn holds school assemblies in this beautifully renovated location, that also houses our vertical tower garden for indoor, winter gardening by our Garden Club.
During the Academic Year, freshman and sophomore boys are educated at the Fitness Academy, while freshman and sophomore girls are educated at our Main Campus, 608 E. McMillan Street, Cincinnati, Ohio, 45206.

Keeping Teen Moms in School (KTMIS)
Keeping Teen Moms in School (KTMIS) alternative academic path at Dohn Community High School is one of the few programs in the country that offer a supportive, academic community for pregnant teens and teen moms. Our non-traditional school uniquely meets the emotional and academic needs of our student moms and offers many opportunities for them to graduate on time, and step onto a career path that is aligned with innate skills and interests.
One of the most exciting parts of KTMIS is that our teen moms have access to an onsite learning Center for their infants and toddlers. The young moms, therefore, can check on their babies during the 8:30-1:00 school day. Likewise, several days a week, the teen moms bring their babies back to the academic classroom for a twenty-minute mother/child reading session to encourage proactive reading inside and outside the classroom.
Besides the traditional high school curriculum and onsite childcare, KTMIS offers transportation to and from school, parenting classes, early childhood literacy training, and job placement services. KTMIS also partners with Cradle Cincinnati, the Public Library of Cincinnati, Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank, and many others.
To register for KTMIS call 513-281-6100 and ask for Mrs. Nelson KTMIS or email email@example.com
