Concept Schools may have a laser-like focus on academics, but we provide plenty of extracurricular activities, including sports programs, that help develop the whole student. When we heard that National Blue Ribbon winning Horizon Science Academy Columbus High School alumnus Harold Jones-Quartey made the regular season roster of the Chicago Bears, we could not have been more proud.
Mr. Jones-Quartey, who is from Columbus, attended the University of Findlay in Findlay, Ohio and was a safety last fall for the UF Oilers. After a near-miss for making the Arizona Cardinals practice squad, Jones-Quartey learned last weekend that he would be joining the Chicago Bears’ regular-season roster.
The dedication and perseverance that this level of athletic success requires is something all current and former Concept students can look to for inspiration. As for HSA Columbus High School and Concept Schools, as UF coach Rob Keys told
The Courier news, “It’s great for the (UF) program and is going to help in recruiting,” Keys said. “(Jones-Quartey) was a model citizen . . . You can’t ask for a better representative at the University of Findlay.” We feel the same way.
