The Cincinnati Zoo Academy has been a part of the public school system in Cincinnati since 1975. In 1995, the program underwent a substantial change from a strictly vocational program with an emphasis on natural resources and wildlife management to a four year college preparatory program where the students earn vocational degrees by working with zoo keepers for two hours a day. During the 2008 – 2009 school year we initiated a transition and became a Tech Prep program with articulation agreements with UC Blue Ash and Cincinnati State. Students spend their ninth and tenth grade years at the Hughes High School. During their eleventh and twelfth grade years they will spend part of each day at the Zoo Academy on zoo grounds.
