The mission of ReGeneration Schools Bond Hill Campus is to prepare its students to enter and succeed in college through effort, achievement, and the content of their character.

ReGeneration Schools is launching a K-4 community school in the Bond Hill neighborhood. We are now enrolling kindergarten and first grade students for the August 2019 school start. The school is tuition free and open to all rising kindergarten or first grade student in Ohio.

About the School

ReGeneration prepares all students to enter and succeed in college through effort, achievement, and the content of their character. All students demonstrate excellence in reading, writing, math, science and history while consistently exemplifying the virtues of respect, integrity, diligence, responsibility, compassion and perseverance.

We work diligently to create schools that are academically rigorous, build character, and are infused with joy. We aspire to create the best elementary schools in Cincinnati, where excellence is the only acceptable standard.

ReGeneration is characterized by a culture that is orderly, supportive, and focused on academic work.  The ethos of the community is one of mutual care and respect.  Students have the right to a quality education that supports their development into productive and responsible citizens. Since 2012, ReGeneration Schools has been managing six turnaround schools in Chicago and has significantly raised achievement in all of them.

Now, it is time to give back to Cincinnati, the hometown of ReGeneration's CEO, Stacey Shells, and COO, Andres Tolentino.
