Education and Scholarships

The OHB School is committed to helping every student reach their full academic potential. Located on our main campus at 52nd and Ames Streets, the school serves all of the youth in our Residential Living Program. The school focuses on credit recovery and accrual with the goal of helping students meet grade-level expectations. The school also assists with college preparatory classes and financial aid assistance and offers scholarships to eligible students.

Certified teachers oversee the day-to-day teaching responsibilities of the school, conducting class and holding the students accountable for attendance, participation, homework and tests — all the same expectations of a public school classroom. Youth Advocates are also present in the classroom to help students learn proper behavior when faced with frustrating situations and to provide positive reinforcement for practicing good behavior.

OHB Scholarship

Thanks to many generous friends of OHB, we have a robust scholarship program that allows eligible youth to receive financial assistance towards advancing their education or career. Youth who currently or formerly participate in one of OHB’s programs may apply for a scholarship should they meet additional qualifications.
