“I would not be where I am today if it were not for my teachers and coaches at Franklin Road Academy. They motivated me every step of the way to reach my full potential, not only as a student but as a whole person.”

FRA's Strategic Vision to Invest in People

Continue to cultivate a talented and diverse educational community passionate about our mission and driven to provide innovative experiences for our students in a welcoming and inclusive Christian community

Relationships are the heart of our work. Students, families, and educators who are committed to inspiring, encouraging, and nurturing one another are critical to our mission. We recognize the inherent value of learning from others and living out our Christian mission by engaging the broader community, and we are committed to offering the finest educational experience and promoting a culture that values and supports all stakeholders. Doing so will provide a dynamic education for students and prepare them to be strong, empathetic leaders.
