Akron Public Schools has established an unprecedented program, following the “Sister City” doctrine founded by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956. The idea of a “Sister City” is well-established in the public eye and has an immediate positive perception that comes along with the idea of sharing ideas and best practices.
The concept of sister universities/colleges allows for the full integration and partnership of post-secondary institutions into our Akron Public Schools. The sister university/college partnership uses the strengths of the post-secondary institution to focus on curriculum, project-based learning experiences and support for college access. These partnerships will help to bring support and resources to APS students and help them navigate choices in both colleges and careers.
