Alexander L. Wade (February 1, 1832 – May 2, 1904) was an American educator.
He developed a system of grade promotional exams and graduations for West Virginia schools that allowed rural children to participate more efficiently. He wrote and spoke on this educational system, and the system was adopted widely in the United States. His book "A Graduating System for Country Schools," was published in 1881.
The Alexander Wade House in Morgantown, West Virginia was declared a U.S. National Historic Landmark due to the significance of his work.,
