Franklin Academy’s educators worked diligently throughout the summer to make possible the repopulation of campus. Over the four days of staggered campus arrivals, we are witnessing returning students’ joy and new students’ excitement. Consequently, we understand better how much we have missed each other during our months apart. Here is an email sent to me by the father of a new postgraduate student.

Even with all of the COVID restrictions in place, I wanted to let you know that today was a great experience. Everyone we met was very warm and welcoming, and I feel that Max is in a great place. I am very optimistic this will be a fantastic experience for Max. I appreciate all of the work you have done to ensure that the school would open with the students in-residence. Thanks again, Glen

We take opening day photographs of parents and students. Here are Glen and Max taking a mask break to smile into the camera.
