Fairborn Digital Academy, a public community school, was founded in 2002 by Robert Grimshaw to provide a school of choice to traditional high school students in grades 9-12.  It offers a self-paced, low pressure solution with personal attention from accountability coaches to help students overcome obstacles, succeed and graduate.

“Depending on the program that is right for the student, we offer the flexibility that many of our students and their families need to get through high school,” explained Erik Tritsch, Executive Director of FDA.  “A traditional high school setting is not optimum for every student.  We make an effort to be aware of individual differences that may make learning and succeeding a challenge, and we address those issues for each student.”

The  “online-plus-class time” school setting is ideal for students who, for various reasons, thrive in a smaller, more focused environment.  FDA has an innovative take on what some students need to succeed; all the latest technology, a smaller, more focused setting, individualized instruction plans for all students, and tutoring on an as-needed basis.

Students may enroll from Fairborn and contiguous school districts. 

“FDA is a top-rated dropout recovery school in the state due to our ability to help students overcome obstacles.  We see the school as an opportunity for struggling – or excelling – students to be successful based on their own timetables.  Our students are excelling in certain environments that we are able to provide.  It’s all due to the efforts of our students and their coaches,” said Tritsch.
