Skool Aid was founded in May 2011 by Ian C. Smith, a Northern Kentucky native with over 15 years of experience working with children. Skool Aid got its start providing elementary summer programming, and quickly expanded its offering and team of instructors to provide afterschool, summer, and supplemental during school incentive programs. Today, Skool Aid provides programming for many Cincinnati Public Schools, Kenton County Schools, and Newport Independent Schools.
Skool Aid’s mission is to enrich the lives of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky children through quality after school, during school and summer programs. Serving both public and private schools, as well as other children’s organizations, Skool Aid brings together passionate, talented instructors with a variety of backgrounds to provide a wide range of enrichment programming in music, fitness, creative arts, drama, focused tutoring and more. Skool Aid’s programming is designed to help children develop new interests, uncover and nurture hidden talents, develop good behavior and, most importantly – have a ton of fun.
Skool Aid’s vision is to create a network of passionate, talented instructors to provide a wide range of programming that supports the needs of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky schools and children’s organizations.
