Fairborn participates in the DOD STARBASE program. All of Fairborn's 5th grade students attend this excellent program. DoD STARBASE is a premier educational program, sponsored by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs. At DoD STARBASE students participate in challenging "hands-on, mind-on" activities in aviation, science, technology, engineering, math, and space exploration. They interact with military personnel to explore careers and make connections with the "real world." Students also learn teamwork, goal setting, and the importance of staying off drugs.

Students can earn college credit and a monetary incentive for a certain AP test scores. Throughout the summer, FHS teachers trained in Texas, Oklahoma, and Indiana to get advanced instruction which will be ongoing for three years.

All Day Kindergarten offered for all students at Wright Campus!
Fairborn offers all-day kindergarten at the Wright Campus. Our kindergarten program model provides an extended day experience that allows our students time for hands-on learning; time for guided practice; time for exploration; time for self-development; and time for social interaction. Research studies indicate that full-day kindergarten can lead to improved academic achievement and nationally; many states and districts are offering full-day kindergarten! Research also shows that students in full-day kindergarten contributes to increased school success and that students in full-day kindergarten are better prepared than those in half-day programs. Achievement findings for full-day kindergarten students show a trend toward higher achievement in literacy and mathematics!

Fairborn’s curriculum requirements meet or exceed the standards set by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and the Ohio Department of Education.

Fairborn High School offers an outstanding Air Force JROTC program. AFJROTC encourages its students to get involved in their local communities to help them become well-informed and helpful citizens. Each year’s Aerospace Science course work relates to a different theme. Examples are frontiers in aviation history, the science of flight, and the exploration of space. Aerospace Science is a combined social studies, applied science, and leadership development course sponsored by the United States Government. College-bound students can compete for an Air Force Academy nomination or an Air Force ROTC scholarship through their Air Force Junior ROTC unit. Recent graduate, Dave Scarberry, is a graduate of the Merchant Marine Academy and his sister, Betsy Scarberry, is attending the United States Air Force Academy on a full scholarship! Astonaut, Col. Gregory H. Johnson, Fairborn Class of 1980, recently piloted the Space Shuttle Endeavour and visited his alma mater to talk to students!
