    Overview

    What if a school was designed just for students like you?  

    As a boarding school catering to students from grades 8 to 12, including post-graduates, we foster continuous social interactions throughout the day. Whether in the classroom, dining hall, or dorm rooms, students engage with peers and faculty alike. Through these interactions, they gain self-awareness, become passionate lifelong learners, and learn to advocate for themselves. 

    At Franklin we serve exceptional students. They are wired a bit differently, so we are, too. We have learned to not just think outside the box, but to discard the box entirely. Instead we focus on ingenuity and innovation combined with community and compassion. The result is a place where we meet students where they are instead of making them fit in a preconceived paradigm. We give them the chance to learn from mistakes instead of getting bogged down by failure.

    Franklin knows that our students learn in distinctive ways. So we broke the traditional mold. Typical subjects are presented  in entirely new ways with a super-serving of the all important soft skills woven in throughout each class. Plus, these young people do best when they are interested (who doesn’t?). So practical skills are reinforced while exploring true passions in cross-disciplinary, collaborative electives.
