Fred W. Edwards Academy serves as the Temple ISD alternative high school campus. The alternative education campus serves students in grades 9 through 12 that are at-risk of not graduating. As a non-traditional accredited high school, Fred W. Edwards Academy is another route to graduation for those students who are not successful in a traditional high school setting. Students use online, computer-based curriculum supplemented with offline projects and assignments to ensure that all Texas Performance Standards are met and that the curriculum is rigorous, relevant, and real-world. Students are able to catch up academically and/or move ahead at an accelerated pace. Students also leave Edwards Academy college, career, or military ready.
