Dave and Susan Dudas, co-founders of the Edge Academy, established Akros Middle School for parents that demand a choice for their child's education.  

Dear Parents/Guardians:

          It is hard to believe we are already ½ way through the first quarter of the school year. I wanted to give you some updates about the online program offered at The Edge Academy and Akros Middle School as well as some reminders about procedures that were put into place.

          First it is with a heavy heart that we will be saying good bye to Mrs. Bell who has been an integral part of our online team. Many of you have seen her during technology pick up or have talked to her on the phone when your child is in need of some technology assistance. She will be moving out of state at the beginning of October. She will be missed greatly. To ensure a smooth transition of the online program the current administrative team (Mrs. DeCesare, Mrs. Piskula, Mr. Blain, Mr. Rogers, and Mr. Bentley) will be over seeing the program for the remainder of the school year. If you have any questions or concerns please call The Edge Academy for your students in grades K-5 at 330-535-4581 and Akros Middle School for your students in grades 6-8 at 330-374-6704.

          I also want to take this time to remind you of some expectations of the online program:

  • Daily attendance of live lessons is mandatory unless absence is excused-this counts towards your child’s attendance and is vital to their success
  • Daily activities are counted towards their grade and daily attendance. It is important that all assignments are completed and turned in on time-within one week
  • If unexcused, late work may be accepted for partial credit but will not be counted towards attendance credit after one week.
  • If your child is going to be absent you need to communicate with the school or their online teacher. (please also contact your online teacher or the school if you are having internet issues)
