Academy of Whole Learning is now Franklin Center

Academy of Whole Learning is now the Franklin Center

We have a new look that enhances our commitment to unlocking the full potential of our students and clients, from grade school all the way through adulthood.


We offer a world-class education, but we are so much more than a school.

We take a holistic approach to the individual. Each of our distinct departments intersect to create a comprehensive environment that supports the whole person. Through transformative services in our school, behavior department, therapy clinic, enrichment programs and adult education program, we are able to help those we serve develop the skills to reach their full potential.

Your support helps power opportunities and dreams

As a registered not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, your gifts directly impact the lives of our students and are tax deductible as allowable by law.
