Seven Hills School is now accepting students for their Academic Readiness Program designed to ensure that private education is available, inclusive and welcoming.


Is your child struggling in their current school environment? Looking for a different education choice?  Would benefit from a smaller classroom environment?  Private school education may not be as far out-of-the-question as you think.


Seven Hills is a pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade private school with campuses in Madisonville (Pre-K to grade 12) and Walnut Hills (Pre-K to grade 5). The school welcomes interested students in the 4th through 8th grade to apply for the Seven Hills Academic Readiness Program (SHARP), which is designed to help ensure that private education opportunities are available, inclusive and welcoming to all.


The SHARP School Year Program welcomes students who are curious, eager learners seeking an academic challenge and enriching educational experience. This year’s program will run for eight weeks from December 5, 2019, through February 6, 2020. Sessions will be held every Thursday from 6:15 p.m. – 8 p.m.


Students who are considering applying to Seven Hills or a similar private school will prepare for the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE). The program includes engaging, hands-on learning experiences from language arts and writing to math and science to social studies and geography to world language.  Students and families will also learn about admission processes, grants, scholarships and networking opportunities with other SHARP families.


Here is what you need to know before you register for the SHARP School Year Session:

    • Registration is open through November 15, 2019, and spaces are limited.
    • The eight class school year program runs December 5, 2019 – February 6, 2020, every Thursday from 6:15 p.m. – 8 p.m. on the Hillsdale Campus, 5400 Red Bank Road, in Madisonville.
    • Cost: $100 for the eight-class session, to be credited toward application and testing fees for Seven Hills.
    • All SHARP students have access to fee waivers for the ISEE test and the Seven Hills admissions process. SHARP participants who apply to Seven Hills will be eligible to apply for tuition assistance, including scholarship funding set aside for SHARP participants.
    • Both Seven Hills campuses are accessible by the Cincinnati Metro. During the school year, the school has a student shuttle that connects the Hillsdale and Doherty campuses before and after school.
