The Ben Franklin Academy is an independent, progressive, college-prep high school. We teach a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, tailored to each student’s individual learning style, needs, and special interests.
At BFA, we are committed to individualized instruction and mastery learning. Our students often have not been well served by traditional schools. We offer another way. Here you will find a caring community of learners, where students develop deep relationships with their teachers and advisors, work in settings designed to encourage their best efforts, and become responsible, self-directed young men and women who are ready to excel at college and beyond.
BFA is dually accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and by the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS). We are members of AAAIS, GHSA, GISA and the Coalition of Essential Schools, a national network of schools committed to redesigning their instructional programs to ensure that students demonstrate mastery over essential skills and areas of knowledge.
