Rising to the Challenge


A great School that goes the distance, Franklin Academy is exceeding all expectations! Rising to the challenge of this unprecedented time, Franklin Academy can rely on a foundational component of our innovative program – our team approach.  Each team has seven adults who plan and deliver a holistic educational program for 18-24 students.  This model allows for flexibility in adapting to the needs of our students and enables us to design and implement quality programming, even if it is during a pandemic!

Our team model together with our commitment to providing single occupancy dormitory rooms, along with weekly COVID testing, has allowed us to be on campus, with in-person instruction.   We continue to offer  “Cyber Franklin,” to those who cannot travel safely back to campus, but right now all but a handful of our students are enjoying podding with their friends and classmates here with us in East Haddam.

We are so impressed with our faculty and staff and could not be more proud of how they have risen to this challenge. We are Franklin Strong!
