Shalom Grant for Charter School’s Security
The Arts & College Preparatory Academy, or APCA, is a tuition-free, public charter high school on the east side of Columbus with a 97% graduation rate. About a third of its students are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Many were bullied at their old schools. A $1,000 Columbus Jewish Foundation Shalom Grant is helping ACPA with safety and security improvements, just in time for the start of the new school year.
