These sessions are being held for those prospective 8th grade boys and their families who were unable to attend the school’s Open House in December or one of the student-visitation days held throughout January.
We invite those interested to come and see what makes St. Charles a great choice for young men pursuing a high-quality college preparatory education.
Students and parents will visit freshman classes, tour the Main and West Campus facilities and receive information regarding college readiness provided through our curriculum; our championship caliber athletic and extra-curricular activities; and a financial aid program that provides more than $1.4 million annually for qualified students and their families. There will also be question and answer sessions with administrators, faculty members, coaches and group moderators.
If you have any questions about these informational visitation days or would like to sign up to attend one, please contact the school by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 614-252-6714.

On Wednesday, May 11th, St. Charles Preparatory School was honored to welcome Ohio State University football legend Archie Griffin to its Robert C. Walter Student Commons to speak to the community about “Character and Leadership.” You are highly encouraged to watch his presentation which was meaningful and inspiring to all those who heard it.
Click HERE to view the YouTube video. The program begins at the video’s 2:01 mark.
Mr. Griffin’s visit was sponsored by the St. Charles student group, My Brother’s Keeper (MBK), as part of its “Speaker Series” on Character & Leadership. The organization promotes diversity and inclusion at St. Charles Preparatory through recruitment, retention, enrichment and service to the community. Last year the school was honored to have national sports commentator and former Ohio State All-American and Indiana Pacer basketball player Clark Kellogg make the series’ inaugural presentation.
Special guests on hand will include 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students from United Schools Network’s Columbus Collegiate Academy. Many of these young men are currently matched up with St. Charles students in the hugely-successful MBK Mentoring Program. Through regular mentoring opportunities and training, these pairings focus on enhancing life skills, such as: goal setting, conflict resolution, decision making and leadership for those involved.
In addition to this peer mentoring, St. Charles is receiving great support from corporate partners: American Electric Power, Corna-Kokosing, Fifth Third Bank, and Huntington. Each of these partners has provided Adult Mentors who over the last year have engaged these St. Charles and USN students in deeper reflections on virtues and character traits required in a professional context. This serves as deeply valuable relationship building for our students in exposing them to corporate cultures of integrity as well as establishing lasting relationship with a caring and committed adult from the business community.
St. Charles is operating its program in partnership with The Mentoring Center of Central Ohio and The Better Business Bureau’s Center for Character Ethics and thanks to a Community Connectors Grant from the Governor’s Office.
We hope you will join us next Wednesday afternoon and encourage you to invite others whom you feel would benefit from hearing Mr. Griffin’s presentation. Questions regarding the event or the MBK Mentoring Program can be directed to Mike Warner (Faculty Member, MBK moderator) at email@example.com.
