I graduated from FA in the early 2000s, attending for 1st-12th grades. I'm shocked that it's still accredited. I was utterly unprepared for college upon graduation, and only 4 students from my high school class graduated from college, but they went to either ULM or Tech. Franklin Academy uses a curriculum designed to indoctrinate children into white supremacy and Evangelical Christianity. I was taught blatant misinformation, something I was embarrassed to find once I got to college and got failing grades in American history - a subject I made straight A's in at FA. There were NO music or art programs when I attended, and while there were clubs they were in name only - you paid your national chapter dues so that you could put it on your college applications but outside of that clubs didn't ever meet or do any activities. There was no special education program and there were only five minority race children in the entire preschool through the 12th-grade facility in the 12 years I went to school there. Sports are important, though. There were no honors, AP, or IB classes, or even electives other than those required by the state to earn TOPS. FA routinely hires teachers with NO background in education or any formal training whatsoever. Send your children theirs at your own peril. Be glad if they graduate able to read - some of my classmates couldn't.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
