The entire Franklin Academy family, including underclassmen and their parents, gathers at the end of the school year to honor outstanding achievement and personal growth across the grades, recognize our postgraduates, and celebrate the graduation of our seniors. The ceremony takes place beneath a big tent on the lawn in front of the dining hall. There is plenty of seating so there is no need to RSVP. The faculty, student, and senior process immediately at 10:30 am, and the ceremony is a little more than an hour in length. At the conclusion of graduation, our newest alumni recess and form a receiving line. All teachers, students, parents, and guests enjoy the buffet luncheon that follows. After that, the leave-taking begins. Students should be on their way home by mid-to-late afternoon for the start of summer vacation.
