About Our School
Since 1991, Frederick Douglass Academy 1 (FDA) has aspired to be a college preparatory school; by providing students from the surrounding community with college-level courses, extracurricular activities and advice on surviving the college process, students are prepared to succeed in whatever they do after highschool. Amongst these college-level courses, there are Advanced Placement (AP) classes that are offered including AP Computer Principles, AP Calculus and AP Physics; passing the AP Exam gives students college courses. The aforementioned extracurricular activities, some of which are the Harlem Knights Robotics team, the FDA Lions and various trips abroad, ensure that students are well rounded for college applications. Finally, the college office, along with the guidance office, provide students and their parents with continuous support throughouts student’s time in highschool so they are prepared for the intricacies of the college application process. Overall, FDA provides a plethora of opportunities to ensure that students view attending college as not only feasible but also a definitive part of their future.
