About Franklin Academy Inc
Employment Overview Franklin Academy offers a college preparatory program designed for students with Nonverbal Learning Disabilities (NLD), Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Asperger’s Syndrome (AS), and other learning profiles. We serve boarding and day students in grades nine through twelve, and postgraduates. Ninety-five percent of students live on campus, and they come to us from across the country and around the world. The school’s approach to education is non-traditional, and the innovative interdisciplinary curriculum has a primary focus on skill development and the mastery of competencies that enables our students to be successful in college and beyond. Franklin Academy is located in East Haddam, Connecticut along the beautiful and scenic Connecticut River. Our 75-acre rural campus is situated next to the 700-acre Chapman Pond Preserve, which runs along the river. We are located halfway between Old Saybrook on the Long Island shoreline and Middletown, which is the home of Wesleyan University. We are 40 minutes to Hartford and New Haven and 90 minutes to New York City and Boston. Our Teachers are the “heart and soul” of Franklin Academy, and we look for teach...ing professionals who are eager to serve students with special needs. Our students are dedicated to learning, but they learn differently than typical students; most are auditory learners who struggle with visual/spatial and visual/motor demands. Given the needs of our students and the round-the-clock responsibilities of a boarding school, we acknowledge that Franklin Academy is not the right school for every educator. However, for aspiring educators who want to learn how to teach, for veterans who want to learn new teaching strategies, and for every teacher who wants to make a positive difference in their students’ lives, Franklin Academy is a great place to live and work. Our students present a unique set of neurological and behavioral characteristics that make success unlikely in a traditionally structured school environment. Franklin Academy’s task has been to develop a program that allows our students to thrive. Since our program does not fit neatly into a traditional boarding school paradigm, a language-based learning disabilities program, or a more therapeutically structured setting, we have borrowed elements and best practices from all three types of programs, molding useful components into a thoughtfully integrated structure to produce a program that is “gestalt based.” We do not compartmentalize components, differentiating the academic and residential programs; rather, we embrace a holistic philosophy to address each student’s social, emotional, behavioral, and academic functioning, identifying what a student needs to learn in order to be successful in college and life. If you would like more information about the school, please feel free to visit our website at www.fa-ct.org. Thank you very much for your interest in Franklin Academy. We look forward to hearing from you.
