Ninde Scholars

Oberlin High School students in grades 11 and 12 may apply to become a Ninde Scholar. Applicants must demonstrate a drive for learning and desire to continue their education post graduation. The program is open to students who lack the support and resources to apply to college. We especially seek underrepresented students, low-income students, and students who would be the first in their families to attend college. Selection criteria include academic success measured by grade point average and quality of essay; financial need measured by eligibility for federal free and reduced lunch; educational background measured by highest level of parent education; and motivation and engagement in education measured by short answers and essay on an application.

Discover The Oberlin Community
 

Ohio Magazine named Oberlin the “Best Hometown” in northeast Ohio for 2012, stating: “The
 quintessential college town, Oberlin hosts a variety of arts and culture activities, and is home
to many eclectic shops and restaurants.”  Previously designated Ohio’s “Best College Town,”
our community is not only a destination, but home for many who love Oberlin's rare
combination of restaurants, shopping, architecture, cultural attractions, collegiate
enthusiasm, and great neighborhoods.
 

 

  

Oberlin College
 
 

As part of its commitment to the community, Oberlin College is
contributing its greatest resource - a first-class education - as an encouragement to all Oberlin students to pursue excellence and seek a college degree.  Beginning in the 2001-02 academic year, Oberlin College will offer full tuition scholarships to qualified graduates of Oberlin High School. The scholarships are a component of the College/Schools Partnership, a collaborative effort between the College and the Oberlin public schools to enhance the quality of public education for all students in Oberlin.

Boys & Girls Club
In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Lorain County offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Lorain County are a safe place to learn and grow – all while having fun. They are truly The Positive Place For Kids!

Any intentional written, verbal, or physical act that a student has exhibited toward another particular student more than once and the behavior both: (a) causes mental or physical harm to the other student; (b) is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it creates an intimidating, threatening, or abusive educational environment for the other student.
