A Day in
the Life

Our students don’t have a typical day at Fairborn Digital Academy. Our unique programs offer them a variety of choices. We encourage them to learn on their own and to work together in groups. While some students take an accelerated path by getting a head start on college, others are working towards their GED. Whichever path our students choose, they have our support and our staff to get them prepared for whatever challenges they face.

Each student will have an entirely unique experience, but all will have fulfilling results. Find more information on the daily happenings of Fairborn Digital Academy by visiting our News page.

The Parent Experience

Parents can support their students by working closely with our experienced, dedicated team of guidance counselors, accountability coaches, and teachers to monitor progress and provide guided support.

Parents are a facilitator of their child’s education, partnering with school staff to ensure that students are on track and prepared for their future steps. Fairborn encourages parents and guardians to be involved in their student’s development, and we invite you to tour our facility, meet our teaching team, and ask questions.
