The 2024 Community Makeover in Bond Hill is being hailed as a “Home Run” by Xavier Jesuit Academy Fr. Nathan Wendt, S.J., president of the new and only Jesuit Catholic grade school in Cincinnati.

“The Bond Hill Community is on a roll and today’s announcement that the Community
Makeover will happen here is a home run,” said Wendt. “The Xavier Jesuit Academy is thankful to all of the Makeover partners for their generosity and how their collective efforts will help transform Bond Hill for its residents and our students.”

The “Community Makeover Day” has become an annual undertaking by hundreds of volunteers from some of Cincinnati’s most iconic businesses and organizations. Led by Executive Director of the Reds Community Fund Charley Frank and P&G’s Matthew Ewing, this year’s event is scheduled for August 1, 2024 in the Cincinnati neighborhood of Bond Hill.

“We are excited to be supporting the neighborhood of Bond Hill and, specifically, the Xavier Jesuit Academy, the Bond Hill Food Pantry, Bond Hill Playground, the Bond Hill Recreation Center and the Bond Hill Academy,” said Frank. “Hundreds of volunteers from many of Cincinnati’s most iconic businesses and institutions will be investing themselves and their talents in improving the community.”

The Xavier Jesuit Academy is renovating the former St. Agnes Elementary School on the site of the Church of the Resurrection campus to provide a first-class learning environment that is safe and nurturing to accommodate young men (grades 3 – 8). Smaller class sizes (15 – 1 student/teacher ratio) follows the Jesuit Nativity education model school design intended to encourage young learners during their formative years. XJA is run by Jesuits, the same Catholic order of priests that support St. Xavier High School and Xavier University. It is scheduled to open in August 2024.
