KTMIS with Purpose!

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.

    “KTMIS was a lifeline! They gave me transportation, childcare, and help balancing school and parenting. They always had my back. It was like joining a very stable extended family whose only goal was to get me to graduation. I learned as much about being a good mom as I did about my class subjects!”
