Educational Philosophy

Experiential Program in an Early College High School

The curriculum of The Charles School at Ohio Dominican University is unique; tested, accessible, and affordable. As part of the fully accredited curriculum, both The Charles School and Ohio Dominican University provide guidance and support to students through high school and the first two years of college work. Guided by teachers and professors who are certified in their academic disciplines, students have the advantage of real-world experiences and rigorous academics.

Early college is such a great experience! It allows you to grasp different leadership qualities and other positive roles that will help you throughout life. It is a great honor to be a part of a program that actually teaches you and helps you pursue your dreams. Life changing!
--Tyhauna, The Charles School at Ohio Dominican University

Teach Arts Ohio at TCS

We were awarded a second TeachArts Ohio grant for the spring semester of 2022-23 to work again with local artist Victor Dandridge in all of our art classes taught by Rachel Prince. The project, VIS-U-ALL, will build a curricular system for student understanding of brand representation, design and management as it pertains to personal applications in everyday life, goal achievement, and practical success.
