At Franklin Academy, academics come first. We place the acquisition of knowledge above all else. As the school has evolved, we have developed a special focus on science, technology, engineering, and math as skills that are particularly important to the future of our students.
Unique and personalized learning experience
Middle school students enjoy a personalized experience at Franklin, with small class sizes, a challenging curriculum and attentive teachers. Each student is appointed to a “House” advisory and a Study Hall group that allow for both social and academic support.
The middle school program at Franklin offers classes in: Spanish, Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, Coding/Technology, Makerspace and Engineering/Economics. Coupled with interesting electives in Art, Band, Robotics, and much more, our middle schoolers become confident learners, and socially conscious individuals.
Field trips in middle school are centered on inquiry-based learning, as students engage in direct experiences to increase knowledge, develop skills, and clarify values —ranging from experiences locally to nationally/ internationally.
