Ben Franklin Academy is the most innovative college prep program among all private schools in Atlanta because it offers high quality individualized instruction using a Mastery Learning approach that helps promising teens with different needs to reach their potential and graduate on time.
We believe that we have built a mainstream high school of real excellence, centered around individualized instruction for students fourteen to eighteen in grades 9-12.

We work to understand each student's unique needs, interests and learning style and develop an individualized instructional program to meet those needs.
