All-School Prom at the Gelston House

Franklin Academy is an inclusive boarding school community. We eagerly embrace newcomers, and everyone participates in all aspects of the Franklin experience. The annual all-school prom is a great example of this participation. Whether you are a senior or a freshman, with or without a date, good dancer or not, every student goes to the prom. Of course, we preview all aspects of the event, focusing on dance lessons, dinner etiquette, dress, grooming, how to ask for a date, and being a good wingman. Teachers cancel afternoon classes so students can prepare for the big night. Then, school vans shuttle everyone to the historic and beautiful Gelston House that overlooks the Connecticut River in East Haddam. As the camera clicks away, students enjoy a magical evening filled with good food, lots of camaraderie, and nonstop dancing.
