Frederick Douglass Academy II helps scholars realize the dream of a college degree and a professional career by providing them with a strong academic background and a solid sense of self-confidence. A replica of Dr. Lorraine Monroe's Frederick Douglass Academy, FDA II provides its scholars with an unrelenting academic curriculum combined with extraordinary opportunities for personal growth. With an emphasis on academics and decorum, the school accepts nothing less than 100% from scholars, parents and faculty alike. A set of core rules signals the seriousness of purpose for the school, its students and teachers. All students must adhere to a code of student conduct, the Scholar's Creed, Twelve Non-Negotiable Rules and a strict uniform code.
