We now offer more STEM classes than the STEM School.

We have implemented a new Kindergarten Readiness Program to support school-age students who aren’t quite kindergarten ready and need additional academic support.
Our Virtual Academy is helping students who are credit deficient earn their high school diplomas.
The graduating class of 2017 earned over $6 million in college scholarships.
We are spending almost 74% of our revenues on what is going on inside the classroom. The State recommends 65%.

Xenia Community Schools offers career tech pathways on-site at our High School: Agriculture, Business & Administration, Engineering & Science Technologies (Biotechnology and Project Lead the Way), Information Technology, and Family and Consumer Sciences. Further, middle school gateway programs are in place to provide students with courses early that may be of interest to them in the future. Warner Middle School also engages students in a Career Connections course that initiates career advising for students.
