Meet our Head of School
Welcome to Franklin Road Academy! As you begin the journey of investigating independent schools for your family, I am confident you will come to understand the true value of an FRA education.
FRA is a remarkable community offering the unique combination of a challenging and supportive educational experience in an inclusive Christian community. Many independent schools provide a great education and others have a faith–based mission, but few do both well. We do at FRA.
As a pre-kindergarten through grade 12 school, all one campus, everything we do is connected, and we are committed to the ongoing development and coordination of our programs to meet our students' needs as the educational landscape changes. Our graduates are
young men and women who are well prepared to succeed at the finest colleges and universities, have a strong sense of purpose, and are eager to make a difference in the world around them.At FRA, we know what matters most. While academic success and college placement are important to our school community, our students are not a grade point average or a standardized test score.
While the pages of our website provide a glimpse into the FRA experience, our people are our greatest asset. I welcome and encourage you to contact our admission office and schedule a campus visit to meet our faculty and students. Our extraordinary faculty members are more than just teachers; they are mentors and role models who inspire students to pursue their academic and co-curricular passions and to support one another in the process. FRA is a place where your child will be encouraged to think critically, act with integrity, and lead by serving others.
Every year, our rising seniors participate in a retreat where they come up with a Bible verse that serves as a theme for the next school year. This year's theme verse is Ephesians 4:23 - "Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace." The pursuit of excellence and a concern for others is what makes FRA so special.
We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful campus and sharing with your family the exceptional value of the FRA experience.
