Bulldog Blast

September 2020

Welcome Back for the 2020-2021 School Year

Dear Mount Auburn Preparatory Academy Families,


It is with great excitement we are sending out our first Bulldog Blast newsletter for the 2020-2021 school year.


We are excited to offer a choice of how you would like your child/children to attend school. As you know, we are offering the following choices in the wake of the pandemic facing our country.

  1. TRADITIONAL: 5 days a week in-person education

  2. ONLINE: 100% at home education

  3. BLENDED: mix of traditional and online education



Our school is staffed and prepared for this school year with a greater focus on student success and having a safe and secure environment. We have a targeted focus on increasing student achievement in a positive environment while keeping our community safe and healthy.


This past school year, we were able to graduate our first class of seniors, and this year we look to graduate four times that number. Something incredibly special about our school is we get to graduate seniors and kindergarten students in the same building. I am looking forward to providing scholars with the skills and content to partake in these graduation through providing a 21st century education.


With the idea of preparing our scholars for a global society with 21st century skills, I am proud to announce we have a technology device for every student K-12 in 2020-2021.


As always, please feel free to reach out to me at chorn@mtauburnprep.org or by calling school at 513-975-3391. The staff and I are happy to help as we move forward with the 2020-2021 school year.


Your Partner in Education,

Craig Horn, Principal
