Lower Price Hill Community School (LPHCS), founded as an adult learning center in 1971 in response to the alarming dropout rate in the Lower Price Hill community, has announced that it has a new name and new branding.
In response to growing community needs, and the closure of a number of neighborhood institutions, LPHCS was inspired to grow to fill the gaps in services & community outreach in the area. The organization will retain the same administration, but become two nonprofits to better provide intentional programming that helps remove barriers to not only education, but opportunity as well.
LPHCS’ long-standing and well-respected GED program (Education Forward), College Bridge program, and Cincinnati State satellite campus will be housed under the new name Education Matters. All community outreach and resource brokering will be managed by Community Matters.
LPHCS is not changing its staff or mission, only names – and the names and organizational structure are changing to not only continue, but provide better, infrastructure in which our students & clients can find their voice, tap into their talents, and learn how to most effectively participate in our burgeoning local economy.
