Curriculum

At Franklin, we foster curiosity and lifelong learning, and prepare students for a successful future where the only constant is change. We combine applied learning with a rigorous core curriculum and personalize the experience for each student. Our curriculum and academic framework incorporate:

  • Transdisciplinary project-based learning to foster problem-solving skills 
  • An emphasis on the development of critical thinking, critical writing, and public speaking skills
  • Collaboration and peer-to-peer learning 
  • AP courses to challenge students, introduce college-level academics, and enable them to receive college credit
  • Micro-courses to introduce students to industries, ranging from financial technology and business incubation to video game design and journalism, enabling them to explore career interests early 
  • Flexibility, offering students opportunities to take electives online
  • The Franklin Incubator, where students will develop their own ideas for innovative projects focused on solving specific problems, expanding their entrepreneurial and leadership skills along the way
  • Individualized guidance, through our extensive academic care program, providing students with mentoring, social and emotional support, and sustained academic skill development
  • Expert college counseling starting in grade 9, as students prepare for college and beyond
  • Cross-campus collaborations through which students can pursue their own interests and connect with peers around the globe
