To motivate academically talented minority students to apply for admission
to independent college preparatory schools;
To assist such students attending independent schools in maximizing their
experience and development in education and leadership, through supportive services.
For over 45 years, Queen City Foundation, a local non-profit organization has assisted minority students in the Tri-State Region. Our goal is to introduce, inform, and support minority students with academic talent, desire and motivation.
Queen City Foundation actively seeks out minority students and informs them about educational opportunities at the most prestigious independent local day and boarding schools throughout the country. These students are shown opportunities commensurate with their individual academic merit and degree of self-motivation.
Queen City Foundation provides support and encouragement to enrolled students, through programs such as R.A.I.S.E. (Raising African American Awareness in a School and Social Environment).
For 30 years, Queen City Foundation has hosted the Salute to Scholars reception to celebrate the graduating class and to honor their families. Additional support to students is provided through Queen City Foundations indirect association with groups such as the Fund for Independent Schools of Cincinnati (FISC), which provides scholarship funds to assist students at local Queen City Foundation affiliated schools. The Seven local Queen City Foundation affiliate schools are: Cincinnati Country day School, Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy, St. Ursula Academy, St. Xavier High School, The Seven Hills School, The Summit Country Day School and Ursuline Academy.
A wide varity of opportunities for educational growth and development await students who posses the talent, motivation and desire. Queen City Foundation will continue to explore ways to better assist these students and their parents in their efforts to make the most of these opportunities.
