From Preschool to Middle School
A supportive community with STEM focused education in a safe, small class environment for all grades.
Small class sizes ensure high-quality individual attention, where teachers aim to understand the needs and aspirations of every child. This one-on-one focus promotes personal growth and enables students to learn and progress at their own pace.
Students excel at The Franklin Academy where they are part of a supportive community. Our STEM focused education in a small class environment that fosters academic growth. Students out perform Bellingham and Washington public school students on standardized tests.
Students have an opportunity to apply what they learn at The Franklin Academy through hands-on, real-world applications. Learning extends beyond the classroom with field trips, local overnight excursions, and even international travel. Middle School students enjoy electives that give them ample time to try new things, grow, and discover their skills and passions.
Our program provides each child with challenges that scaffold in appropriate increments from preschool through middle school. Our students expand their core subject knowledge by attending specialized teaching in Spanish, Music, Spanish, Art, Physical Education, Coding/Technology, and Library. Our faculty works in cross-grade teams to create a curriculum that proves an optimal learning environment and seamless transition from year to year.
Inclusive of All Faiths
We teach ecumenical Christian values in a chapel setting, reinforced by our Core Commitments: Care, Engage, Create, and Reflect. Our students belong to a wide variety of faiths, and we both embrace and celebrate the rich religious diversity represented in the student body. Our school community has earned respect, support and participation of families, students, and faculty from Christian denominations as well as Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Sikh, and other traditions and beliefs.
We are grateful for our strong board commitment and notable parent involvement at our school, both in the classroom and through our parent group, Parents Actively Lending Support (PALS). Parents and students engage in many volunteer projects, like our Annual Auction Gala or class community service projects.
