Time to FLI is an upcoming parent seminar focusing on the Franklin Learning Institute (FLI). FLI is an innovative and selective program for our seniors and postgraduates. The presenters are FLI Advisors: Pete Govert [Residential and Internship Specialist], Stephanie Lopez [Learning Specialist], Kim Youmans [Counselor], and Kinsley Rausch [Dean of Transition Services]. Parents of students applying to participate in next year’s FLI program are encouraged to participate in this seminar. The date is Tuesday, March 2, at 4:00 pm.

FLI colleagues will outline the program differences between the high school teams [Cranes, Herons, and Owls] and the Franklin Learning Institute. Then, they will identify the changes that students and their parents will experience as our seniors and postgraduates take steps towards greater self-awareness, advocacy, and autonomy. This progression from childhood to adulthood requires resources, strategies, and encouragement. Next, the team will then review the programmatic structure and vision building available as each FLI student prepares for their postsecondary journey. There will also be plenty of time for you to ask questions. Finally, participants will complete a short survey to help the FLI staff better support your family.

Meanwhile, please do not forget Transitions to Postsecondary Education, a seminar presented by Byron Crozier, College Counselor, and Jennifer Dziekan, FACTS Advisor. We have scheduled this hour-long presentation for Tuesday, February 23, at 4:00 pm. Zoom links for this presentation and Time to FLI have already been emailed.
