High School

The Children’s Home High School Program for students on the Autism Spectrum

The Children’s Home of Cincinnati partnered with Linden Grove School to provide a comprehensive education and life skills program for high school students diagnosed with an Autism spectrum disorder.

Linden Grove’s success integrating academics, social skills, and therapies was a natural fit with The Children’s Home’s expertise in educating and treating children with significant social and learning challenges. The Children’s Home blended both programs which now provide high school students and their families a valuable resource that guide adolescents towards academic and life success!

Program Features

The school serves students in grades 9-12, and provides the same high quality, individualized education as Linden Grove’s K-8 school, and is an approved Ohio Autism Scholarship Provider. In addition, the school features Life Skills and Job Readiness programming to help older students prepare to be independent and productive young adults. The school is located on the beautiful, 40-acre campus of The Children’s Home at 5050 Madison Road. The building has been specially designed and constructed to meet the unique needs of students with significant language processing, social skills, and sensory integration needs.
