Students who choose our the Franklin Learning Institute (FLI), Franklin Academy’s College Program, have decided to move forward
toward more independence, but they understand that they are not yet
ready to take the huge leap of attending a traditional four-year
college.  They want a program that promotes personal growth and
independence within the embrace of a safe school community while having
the option to earn some college course credits, perhaps pursue an
Associates Degree or qualify for a certificate in a particular
discipline, and even earn a Bachelor’s Degree.  These different
objectives can now be realized as a result of Franklin Academy’s
partnership with the University of Connecticut (UCONN) and a collaboration with
Post University. 

Partnering with UCONN through the Early College Experience allows FLI
students to take college classes on the Franklin Academy campus.
 Courses in English, Latin American Studies, Science, and Math are now
offered through this incredible partnership.  The following are UCONN
courses that can be offered on our campus:

  • General Chemistry I & II
  • Basic Writing
  • Introduction to Latin America and the Caribbean
  • Elementary Discrete Mathematics
  • Calculus I & II
  • Seminar in Academic Writing

The Post University collaboration means that a postgraduate student
can enroll at Franklin Academy, live on our campus, and take advantage
of all of our programs, services, and supports while taking online
courses that Post makes available to more that 16,000 students.  There
is even the option of matriculating as a regular student at Post
University.  Franklin Academy will provide the necessary structure and
support to ensure that our students meet their course obligations in a
wide variety of subject areas including:

  • Liberal Arts (Literature, History, Social Studies, and Social Sciences)
  • Business, Finance, and Marketing
  • Game Design
  • Education (also Early Childhood Education)
  • Information Technology and Computers
  • Criminal Justice and Corrections

You will be interested to know that US News & World Report
has placed Post University in that select group of colleges and
universities across the country offering the best online Bachelor’s
programs, and we are delighted that our FLI college students will
benefit.  The New England Association of Schools and Colleges accredits
Post University, and Post has a national reputation to facilitate the
transfer of credits to other post secondary institutions.  Perhaps best
of all, tuition for these Post University college courses will be
included in the comprehensive Franklin Academy fee for the FLI College
