Annual Fund

Ben Franklin Academy’s Annual Fund raises money for academic resources and school needs above and beyond those covered by tuition. The successes of our school are made possible by our collective community of learners, and we are grateful to our generous supporters for helping to continue to foster an environment for our students to reach their fullest potential.


2023-2024 Annual Fund 

Gifts to the 2023-2024 Annual Fund will support the purchase of technology enhancements and upgrades centered around STEAM initiatives including computer hardware and software for enhanced coursework, lab materials, and teacher learning tools. Additionally, support will enable us to provide need-based scholarships through the Wood Smethurst Scholarship Fund, exemplifying our beloved "Doc" Smethurst’s legacy of academic inclusion.
