Academic achievement is only a small part of the picture in a student’s life, and is often weighted far too heavily in school admissions offices. Franklin Academy selects students based on indicators of their future potential, characteristics including intellectual curiosity, perseverance in the face of adversity, and creativity. Read our admissions section for more information and contact our admissions office to start your application.
Franklin Academy is a triply certified school (MAIS (formerly MPSA), state of Louisiana and SACS accredited) that enrolls students grades PK – 12. Our staff is composed of 18 certified teachers, paraprofessionals for classroom aid and enhancement, one counselor, one secretary, one business manager, two administrators, five cafeteria and janitorial workers, and six adjunct coaches. Our student body is currently at 260+ from grades PK – 12.
The current curriculum structure in the high school meets the requirements for all accreditation purposes. This includes a strong college preparatory array of classes meeting the Louisiana TOPS requirements. In addition, a limited number of electives are offered for those students not following such a rigorous outline of classes.
