School Notes

  • Just as there is no one description of a BFA student, there are as many paths to BFA and our graduates choose their own path upon graduation. Our students scatter to universities and colleges throughout the world, because they are pursuing their dreams and passions not following the crowd.  
  • Above all our motto, "Esse Quam Videre," inspires everything we do - "to be, rather than to seem to be."  
  • Ben Franklin Academy:  Thrive and Flourish
