Limited Openings Available for Grade Eight at the Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School

The Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School (BFCCPS), located in Franklin, Massachusetts, has a limited number of openings for students to join the Grade 8 class starting in October 2022. Founded in 1995, BFCCPS is one of the oldest and most successful charter schools in the state of Massachusetts. 

Siblings of currently enrolled students will have priority enrollment status; thereafter applicants from all 13 communities in the school's district will have an equal chance at securing a spot for their child through this special enrollment lottery for Grade 8.  Applicants from outside of the region (who reside within the state of Massachusetts) will be eligible for enrollment should additional spaces remain after all sibling and regional applicants have been placed.  

The school provides a well-rounded, rigorous academic program designed to educate the whole child providing yearlong courses in art, music, languages, technology, and physical education. The school's integrated character education, community service, and strong parent partnerships, have led to local, state and national recognition. BFCCPS alumni continue to excel during their attendance at local public high schools as well as independent high schools.

A family who enrolled for Grade 8 last year shared the following: 
"We are so happy that our daughter joined 8th grade last year at BFCCPS. BFCCPS has a very supportive community, the teachers greatly care for students' success and were very supportive emotionally and academically. Just one year at BFCCPS helped our daughter to feel more self confident and got her academically prepared for high school. We felt extremely blessed that our daughter won the lottery." - Elena Hearn
All of the enrollment details, including applications can be found on the school website at www.bfccps.org. Please note that the applications for this special lottery will come to a close on October 11th, 2022 at 9am and the enrollment lottery will take place on October 12, 2022.

If you'd like to learn more about the educational mission of the school or have enrollment related questions please contact the school's Communication Coordinator, Joanne Basile at jbasile@bfccps.org or 508-541-3434 x104.
