Student Life


At the Frederick Douglass Academy, a student’s work is not limited to what happens in the classroom.  In addition to student government, FDA students are all encouraged to contribute to our school newspaper, the North Star.  At FDA, we recognize that there must be a balance between academics and personal interests in order to develop a well rounded student who will be ready to succeed in college.
