Challenging Academics. Inclusive Christian Community.
Franklin Road Academy is a pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade coeducational independent school offering a challenging educational experience in an inclusive Christian community. FRA offers 17 AP and 15 honors courses and is the first Tennessee independent school to offer an AP capstone program. One hundred percent of our graduates are accepted into four-year colleges each year, and our seniors continue to be recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. FRA provides an elite education within a collaborative learning environment, ensuring students become critical, innovative thinkers and leaders. We value a well-rounded student experience, and our intentional class size allows students to fully engage in the classroom while competing at a high athletic level or perfecting an art form. Athletics is an integral part of the overall learning experience and extension of the classroom, and our arts offerings complement our intellectual, spiritual, and athletic pursuits, lending a creative outlet for students to hone their craft. There are multiple entry points, and students come from a variety of backgrounds representing 12 countries, including China, Scotland, New Zealand, and Argentina.
