Fees And Tuition

SCPA is a Cincinnati Public School and is tuition free to all accepted and enrolled students who are district residents.  Beginning with the 2013-14 school year, non-district residents in the state of Ohio who are accepted and enrolled may also attend SCPA tuition free. Transportation for non-district residents is the sole responsibility of the student's family.
