Franklin Tigers

Franklin’s robust athletics program provides students with the opportunity to develop and hone their skills as they explore and pursue their passions for sports. Whether participating in an individual sport or collaborating with teammates, our students will build resilience and character, hone their athletic abilities, and compete on the playing field — all while gaining valuable leadership experience that will serve them in the classroom and in all aspects of their lives.
