Message from the Head Elect

Under the leadership of Fred Weissbach and the six founding administrators, Franklin has changed the lives of many, including my own, and remains a leader in the world of secondary education. It is because of Franklin’s community of acceptance, unique mission, dedicated faculty and staff, determined families, and talented students that I have chosen to return to Franklin as the next Head of School. I hope you will embark on what I think will be a tremendous journey with me. 

Franklin Academy has some exciting new ventures in store. Over the past few months, I have met with the administration, received feedback and perspectives from families and students, and assessed competitive programs around the United States. Next year, my team will focus on three main initiatives: 

  • Strengthen the student experience to support the expansion of performing arts and music, provide a more comprehensive depth of academic course offerings, increase student life spaces on campus, build an athletic program, and provide a wider variety of consistent off-campus social opportunities. 
  • Focus on family engagement by establishing a Parents’ Association Board and partnership initiatives to support your student and family’s development. 
  • Provide opportunities to proactively prepare for the postsecondary transition, including more opportunities to engage in experiential learning and interest-based academic opportunities.
