Currently, the Western Toledo Preparatory Academy only accepts about 225 students.

TOLEDO, Ohio – Athletics and Education: That’s the foundation for a new charter school opening in Toledo this fall.

The Western Toledo Preparatory Academy is a new fee-free charter school that accepts students from kindergarten through seventh grade in the fall semester.

Headmaster Kechan Jonson said it had the potential to be “more than just a school” because it was the first of its kind in town.

According to Jonson, not only will students receive quality education, but part of their day will be focused on athletics and physical activity.

“When kids come and want to play sports and want to compete athletically and academically, we really bring these two together,” said Jonson.

The idea follows a new educational model currently in use in the United States. Children spend part of their day in classrooms before moving on to physical activity.

The academy currently only accepts around 225 students.

“We want to keep our class sizes small so that we can concentrate on our students and our athletes. The smaller the class, the more our teachers can focus on them, so that’s our concept, ”said Jonson.

Executives also hope a school like this will provide students with an opportunity to excel in school and stay off the road.

“That is enormous for our city, especially in view of the crime rate. We’re trying to take some of this crime off the streets and get it to the gym or on the court, ”Jonson said.

The Western Toledo Preparatory Academy also offers free summer camps for Toledo teenagers in June.
