Student Activities
Fairmont High School prides itself on offering over 30 student organizations for students. While Fairmont offers traditional groups such as Class Council and Art Club, there are other various opportunities including Philosophy Club and Anime Club to name a few. Want to get involved in your community? Join the Octagon Club which is a service organization or National Honor Society. Get up, get noticed, and get involved.

Studies consistently show that students who participate in extracurricular clubs have high GPAs and are less likely to drop out of school. Extracurricular activities provide students a way to meet other students and make new friends.

Student Athletics
Kettering City Schools has a rich tradition of athletic excellence both on and off the field. Athletics are an important and integral part of the total school program in the Kettering City School District. School activities should neither have precedence over educational activities nor should they be considered unworthy of educational attention. Athletics teach participants the value of cooperation and competition in achieving team goals. The additional time and physical requirements of these activities demand that each participant attain and maintain his/her best physical and mental condition.

Fairmont High School has 28 interscholastic sports for male and female athletic participation:

Men's Sports
Cross Country
Indoor Track
Sports Medicine
Swimming & Diving
Track & Field
Women's Sports
Cross Country
Field Hockey
Indoor Track Soccer
Sports Medicine
Swimming & Diving
Track & Field

All participants must be eligible at the time of tryouts to be eligible for the team. The first step towards eligibility requires the participant to register with Final Forms, the Athletic Department online student/athlete database. To be eligible by OHSAA standards, during the preceding grading period, the student must have received passing grades in a minimum of five one credit courses or the equivalent which count toward graduation for a student in grades 7 to 12. No students will be allowed to tryout for a team after reestablishing eligibility. In addition to the OHSAA standards, all Kettering students must meet Kettering City School District Standards as approved by the Board of Education (see policy 6.2ba). Highlights of this policy include, but are not limited to:

  1. Students in grades 7-12 who wish to participate in interscholastic athletics shall not have failed more than one (1) subject the preceding grading period (9 weeks).

  2. Students in grades 7-12 who wish to participate in interscholastic athletics must achieve a 1.50 GPA, or better, on a 4.0 scale for the preceding grading period.

  3. Students in grades 7-12 who wish to participate in interscholastic athletics whose quarter average falls below 2.00 but meet all other standards must formally apply, and be accepted, into the Academic Intervention Program.

  4. Students entering Kettering School District for the first time must bring with them grades that fall within parameters of this policy to be eligible for their first quarter of attendance.
