The first of thirteen schools in the Greater Cincinnati area, Elder High School was founded in 1922 as part of the Catholic Archdiocese.  

Elder’s success derives, in large part, from the ability of its teachers to transmit to the students a strong work ethic firmly rooted in the Gospel values.  Indeed, it is not enough to work hard; one must do so in pursuit of building the Kingdom of God.  Thus, Elder teaches its students to taste success through selfless service to others, tireless devotion to academic excellence, and an unflinching desire to succeed – all tempered by Christ’s teachings.

Any student interested in applying is strongly encouraged to contact our Admissions Office.  Our main goal throughout this process is to get to know a prospective student and his family in order to determine if Elder is the best fit. We encourage you to schedule a tour, schedule a shadow visit, or attend our Open House to discover everything Elder has to offer.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Maura Korn, our Director of Admissions & Marketing at or (513) 921-3427.

No student will be excluded from Elder High School solely because of race, color, national origin, ancestry, or sexual orientation.
