Everyone deserves an education tailored to their unique strengths and needs.

Cindy Pope

As the Dean of Enrollment and Strategic Initiatives, it is my pleasure to welcome you as you explore Franklin Academy. Choosing the right learning environment is a significant decision. Our goal is to make this process as smooth as possible. The best part of our job is getting to know you and your unique, funny, brilliant, think-outside-the-box student.

We believe that everyone deserves an education tailored to their unique strengths and needs. At Franklin we know neurodiverse students learn differently. Our inclusive 360-degree holistic approach ensures that our students thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Just ask our alumni who have been admitted to over 450 different colleges and universities and who are making their mark on the world using their passions and talents. Ask them too about their friends and the meaningful relationships they enjoy.

These are just a few reasons families choose Franklin:

  • Strength-based, student-centered approach
  • Meeting students where they are
  • A focus on skill development in academics, executive functioning, social cognition, self-awareness/identity, and emotional intelligence
  • A distinct college and career readiness curriculum
  • An honors program culminating in an honors diploma
  • Dual enrollment at the University of Connecticut through their Early College Experience
  • Signature Programs in Anthrozoology and Performing Arts
  • Intentionally small classes
  • Helping students understand their learning profile
  • Tying together academic, residential, and social/emotional aspects of the curriculum
  • Project-based learning
  • Partnering with parents and family engagement

We understand finding the right school can be daunting. But we are here to support you on the way. Whether you have questions about our admissions process, scholarship opportunities, the college preparatory curriculum, or student life, our enrollment team can provide guidance and assistance.

We invite you to learn more about Franklin Academy and what sets us apart from other schools. Our fast-paced, information-packed virtual open houses provide a terrific overview. Scheduling a call or Zoom with a member of the admission team is another great way to get started. Best of all is visiting to get a feel for our welcoming and inclusive community. Call us to schedule a time to stop by: 860-873-2700, ext. 1104. We look forward to seeing you.
