School Notes

  • Our program is designed to support our students' learning style and to enhance their strengths while responding appropriately to the challenges of high functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder, Non-Verbal Learning Disorder, and related executive functioning and social challenges.
  • Compensatory strategies to address these challenges, as well as the development of social skills and independent living skills, are programmatic priorities.
  • Franklin Academy's small classes, the multi-modal and differentiated instruction, and close student-faculty relationships are of particular benefit for all of our students.
  • Five programs are available at Franklin Academy:  High School; the Franklin Learning Institute, College or Gap Year program; Summer Program, skills-based summer camp; Evaluation Center; and College Coaching Program.
