WELCOME TO THE LEARNING CENTER
TIGER QUAD at FHS
The Tiger Quad program offers credit recovery, a self-paced curriculum, a computer-based curriculum, and an alternative learning environment within the Fremont High School setting. Students will be recommended for the Tiger Quad program by their counselor or the Student Assistance Team (SAT) if they have credit or core class deficiencies or if they have other educational needs requiring an alternative educational placement. Priority will be given to 9th and 10th graders who have failed core classes; however, any student with credit/core class deficiencies or alternative educational needs could be recommended. The Tiger Quad program will be administered by teachers from the Fremont Learning Center (Fremont Public Schools’ alternative high school program) daily during 4th Block.
The Tiger Quad is located at Fremont High School 1750 N Lincoln Ave. Phone# (402)941-3148
