"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

Proverbs 22:6

Franklin Academy, founded by Mrs. Margaret Franklin is a full-service educational institution that provides educational support to its students. Our focus is to be a gap-filler for our public school system. We have a PACE program that gives students a diagnostic test to determine their gaps. We believe, with proper guidance and education, we can give students a chance to catch-up to grade level with our plan to place them back in public school when they are ready. Within our private program, we feel we should work diligently to provide students a chance that would not otherwise succeed in a traditional school setting.

We believe that no one shoe fits all.

The Students

Education is  and investment  for your children’s future.  We have Great Students.  Just look at what they are doing.

The Parents

How important are parental involvement in education? Research by the National Education Association states: Ongoing research shows that family engagement in schools improves student achievement, reduces absenteeism, and restores parents’ confidence in their children’s education. Students with involved parents or other caregivers earn higher grades and test scores, have better social skills, and show improved behavior.

The Teachers

Franklin Academy is a full service educational institution that provides educational support to its students. We ask our parents to get involved in their children’s education. Our Teachers love your children and their profession.

The Principal's Message

Margaret Franklin

Each person deserves a chance to learn at their own level and have a chance to improve.  It is my desire to continue to find resources to change families’ lives by introducing resources in technology, agriculture, art and music to help develop each individual talent.  Every person has a unique purpose for life.

We ask our parents to get involved in their children’s education.

Education Philosophy

This measure of life was instilled in me, Margaret Franklin, by an Educator, my Mother, and the late “Elizabeth Lawson Dobbins”: Each person was put on this earth for a purpose, for each purpose there was a need, for each need God made someone special to carry out HIS plan”. This plan includes the teacher, the parent and the student, wherein with proper emphasis on the spiritual, mental, social, and physical aspects of life. The whole being of the person can be developed as a person walking in the light, living the life as a testimony of purpose in fulfilling God’s plan through the way we live our life. Without Education this plan wouldn’t be possible. It takes knowledge to teach, wisdom to understand, and the love of God to follow through.


  • Train youth of every ability in the highest principles of moral character, self-discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity, and good citizenship.
  • To make sure children understand that they must follow all center rules, and advance academically to each individual’s highest potential.
  • To teach the student “how to learn” by incorporating learning methods of research that will develop lifelong habits of study for individual Intellectual success.
  • To provide Christian leadership training through weekly Bible lessons with a focus on teaching the children how to live and to live by the words they use. This further enables the child to strengthen his/her techniques for Christian Manhood and Christian Womanhood.
  • Promote good relationships between teacher and students, pastor and members, parent and child, or teacher and parents, and throughout the communities.
  • Promote a good understanding between parents or guardians and the administration/faculty of this school
