A Greenville school has been awarded top honors. Recently, the Alabama Independent School Association (AISA) presented Fort Dale Academy with the AISA Blue Ribbon School designation for the 2006-2007 school year.

Blue Ribbon School status is achieved by excellence in teaching, student performance, school life and school and community interaction.

&#8220It's a honor to be recognized as a Blue Ribbon School. It reflects on how hard our faculty, parents and students work together to have an excellent school,” said FDA Headmaster David Brantley.

&#8220We are very proud of this achievement for our community.”

Fort Dale Academy was chosen for its high level of excellence in the areas of student and teacher performance, plant and facilities, student life and community involvement.

The AISA, in existence since 1970, says its goal is to maintain an organization of independently operated non-public schools that are rich in diversity, committed to academic excellence and deeply concerned about the growth and development of children and youth.

The AISA Blue Ribbon School Program is sponsored by the AISA to recognize member schools with outstanding educational programs.
