My Students

The students of Franklin Military Academy form a special bond as they learn in an environment that weaves the discipline of the military with the rigors of middle and high school academia.

Every morning all over Richmond the uniformed cadets walk to their bus stop to take the long road to Franklin Military.

Although not from the same neighborhood, the students and their parents have applied and chosen Franklin to provide them the best opportunity possible to bring them success. In turn, Franklin students receive a quality education and the opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities, develop leadership skills, and serve their community.

The result is a well rounded, disciplined cadet who, along with their peers, is prepared to face and make a meaningful impact on the world.

My Project

After the Fall and the past Donor's Choose the middle soccer team is finally starting to look like a real squad with jerseys. To continue the progress this Donor's Choose project is an effort to have enough soccer jerseys for the future and have small goals for practice.

Students love to get outside and play sports.

With soccer students are always moving and running, getting the best out of exercise and the competitive spirit of the game. These supplies will continue to build a strong program for the future of the team.

The Franklin Soccer team continues to build. As we look the part, the young athletes learn how to continue to play the part.
