Hello, I’m Kevane Bowens an alumni of The Edge Academy and Akros Middle School. I would like to first off say I’m eternally grateful for my experience within Kevanethese walls. They’ve gifted me the skills, mindset, personality, and the endurance to carry out my successful life. I’ve attended an exclusive high school known as Akron Early College, where I’ve been given the opportunity to earn college credits while in high school. Thanks to Edge/Akros I was able to take on the higher-level workloads and rise above any negativity that life could curveball. I’m proud to say that I graduated high school in 2015, a year early due to my expanding knowledge capacity. Now, I’m living life, doing what I love, like performing in plays and musicals like I did in my past at Edge and Akros. I’ve also taken on modeling and singing professionally and I’ve also competed on national levels in many performing arts events which I’ve taken first place in. I’m now attending the University of Akron full-time, working a full-time job in the corporate building of Signet Jewelers. These are my successes, what are yours?




Dear Colleague:


In an effort to make sure that all parents of Ohio middle and high school students know about Ohio’s College Credit Plus program, I ask that you work with your district’s middle school and high school principals to distribute the following letter to their students’ parents. These principals also have received a similar email request this morning.


Whatever channels you would normally use to communicate with parents, including the school or district website, newsletter or mailing list, should work fine.Click here to see a copy of the letter that your principals or staff can post, mail or email.


I know that you, like I, want to see your students and their families take advantage of every high-quality educational opportunity we can offer them. Getting our most motivated students on this early pathway to success can help you meet, and even exceed, the current expectations of the families of your community. Thanks very much for your help, and enjoy your weekend.



Dr. Richard A. Ross

Superintendent of Public Instruction


Hi! My name is Nelson Perry and I am an alumni of Edge Academy. I attended Edge from 1st grade – 5th grade (2015, long before Akros Middle School was open) and graduated from Woodridge High School. I am currently working and attending Wayne College where I am studying criminal justice and playing basketball. I will never forget the positive effect my years at Edge had on my life!!
