Truly an excellent school in so many ways, for a delightful variety of teens, from my son, a scholar-athlete, to the musical kids, the drama kids, the math genius, and the dreamy, soulful ones. The teachers at BFA, fascinating themselves, engage with them all, and the staff members are unique too, like Furman, who nurtures the roses; plus they all seem to lead interesting lives, which translate for the kids into inspiring conversations about everything from books to sports.

After three years there, my son, now a senior, will miss this place very much next year!

A wonderful school with mastery program learning. A lot of 1 on 1 teaching with students and teachers. The staff here really care about making sure you understand and have the help you need completing assignments. You can work at your own pace and take the time you need to understand, or work faster and finish classes ahead of schedule. I loved my time here!
Ben Franklin equips students who need an alternative form of education with the academic and life skills they need to be a success in any environment they choose.

I credit my academic and professional success to the individual support I received through Ben Franklin's innovative education model. While at BFA, I laid the foundation for the 501(c)3 non-profit I founded while pursuing my undergraduate degree at New York University. I went on to graduate early with honors from NYU, Beta Gamma Sigma from Emory's MBA program, and in the top 1% of my training cohort at my current company (a leading tech company on the S&P500).

This is the school for creative thinkers. There is no one standard for the BFA student, each is cultivated and nurtured so they are able to achieve their own dreams.
