Armleder Campus Downtown K-6

Preparing for a life of faith and learning—in the heart of downtown

CHCA’s Otto Armleder Memorial Education Center is a Christ-centered multi-denominational school providing academic excellence for students in preschool through grade 6. The school serves a student body predominately living in low income, urban communities in Cincinnati. Students are educated, encouraged, and prepared to grow in a personal faith in Jesus Christ, to pursue higher education, and to serve the Lord, their families, and their communities.

Would your student flourish through some of these experiences?

Museums, the mayor, and more (all grades)

As part of our curriculum, students attend performances at Music Hall and the Aronoff, take in the wonders of the aquarium, and explore a variety of downtown museums every year. Fourth graders attend the swearing-in of the mayor and city council.

American Chemical Society student poster contest (3rd-5th grade)

In one of our STEAM projects—integrating science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics—students create posters explaining nanotechnology. Armleder students have won the ACS contest five years in a row.

Celebration Choir (3rd-6th grade)

Building musical skills, confidence, and teamwork, our renowned choir serves the community through performances—and brings down the house in our all-school productions.

I love this campus and this community. There’s a vibrancy here, an intellectual and cultural energy, that you won’t find anywhere else.Faculty member
