The teachers care. They care about education, they make sure the kids get their work done, and they communicate with you.

– Bobby and Paula, Parents

The administration supports the things that are important. They support the teachers, they are always focused on learning and getting kids as far as they can in 1 year, 2 years, 3 years.

– Kathryn Anstaett

The teachers do everything in their power to be responsible for the success of not only their students, but of the school, of the class, and of the grade.

– Jason, Parent

I have always expected Christopher to go far, but with the help of CCA, Christopher already has a plan. He has a plan and he’s in the 8th grade - and that’s amazing.

– Maria, Mother

I'm most proud of my grades. Since I've come here, I've been on the honor roll every single time.

– Christopher, Student

Fulfilling our mission is no easy task. It will require an extensive commitment of time, energy and financial resources.

CCA has made it possible for my son to get wonderful grades and scholarships to great high schools that I never in a million years thought I would be able to send him to.

– Maria, Parent

We’d like to thank them for the opportunity to let our son go to this school. I don’t know how they found me, but I’m glad they did.

– Bobby and Paula, Parents

This school system is challenging. It pushes the boundaries of creativity and learning.

– Jason, Parent

It’s a great school to attend. It’s a great place to work too, because everyone here has a passion and dedication.

– Michelle Williams

When I visit our students who are now in high school, they have that same passion for college, even after they have left CCA.

– Michelle Williams

These teachers are so upbeat. They make you feel very very welcome.

For the staff, this is not just a job for them. They are really on a mission to change these childrens’ lives and impact the community.

I love the fact that the teachers hold her accountable for her homework, for her tests, for the syllabus. Everything is in order.

Our Performance

Our Performance

Our students consistently outperform expectations.

2016 Ohio Achievement Assessment Results

Source: Ohio Department of Education, Report Cards 2015


These performance statistics make it clear that real progress is being made.

At United Schools Network, we measure proficiency in two important ways:

1. Annual progress, as measured by the Ohio Achievement Assessment (OAA), and
2. Interim progress during the school year, using the NWEA Measures of Academic Progress.

Student Demographics

United Schools Network serves a high-need student population in Columbus. Demographics for our two middle schools and one elementary school for 2014 are, on average:

79.3% are students of color
(94% at CCA-Main St.; 64% at CCA-Dana Ave.)

99.6% are economically disadvantaged

15.5% qualify for special education services

Ohio Achievement Assessment

OAA results from the start-up years of school operations revealed strong progress in reading, math, and science. This trend continued during the 2013-2014 school year. Our students scored above the Columbus City Schools’ average in all subjects, above the state average in 7th grade math, 8th grade reading, 8th grade math, and 8th grade science while serving a student population that proportionally had higher numbers of students eligible for free/reduced price lunch and students of color.
