District Partners with YMCA for Before- and After-School Care


The Nordonia Hills City School District is excited to announce a new partnership with the Akron Area YMCA to provide before- and after-school care for students in grades K-6 and during holiday and summer breaks. The YMCA will replace the current provider, Champions.

This partnership will officially start on August 19, 2019, and parents should soon see information coming from the YMCA about registration. The district is looking forward to this service being provided by a local organization with a stellar reputation in our community.

Please see the statement below from the YMCA:

The Akron Area YMCA, a leading nonprofit, is thrilled to partner with the Nordonia Hills City School District to provide Before- and After-School Enrichment to the children and families of the community. This program will provide a safe, enriching environment that will include homework assistance, healthy snacks and activities that encourage learning and positive interaction. The Y’s staff is state-certified and our program is licensed by the State of Ohio. The Y’s cause is to strengthen the foundation of community through programs that promote youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We are committed to positive youth development and will share our character values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility through the Before- and After-School experience.  Our goal is for every child to experience success while growing in self-confidence and social skills.  

The YMCA program will launch with the start of the 2019-2020 school year and the hours of operation will remain the same as the current program. Details about the registration process will be forthcoming from our Longwood YMCA staff team. Financial assistance is available for those who qualify. If you have questions, please contact Melanie Mayer, Program Director, at (330) 467-8366 extension 3 or via email at melaniem@akronymca.org. We are committed to making this transition as seamless as possible.

For further information about Akron Area YMCA, please contact Jill Kolesar, President and CEO, or Brian Bidlingmyer, Senior Vice President of Development, at (330) 376-1335.

The Nordonia Schools look forward to building our already strong relationship with the YMCA.
