The school contains a Magnet Career Academy with a program in Public Safety Technology. This allows students to explore career opportunities in law enforcement, fire-fighting, and emergency medical technology.

Fairdale has been a member of the Coalition of Essential Schools since 1988. Programs are designed to promote academic achievement, intellectual growth, and enhanced self-esteem through rigor and personalized instruction.
