Frequently cited are teachers warmth, caring, and interest in the children they teach. The recently appointed heads of the Lower, Middle, and Upper divisions (known as Deans) get strong reviews as thoughtful leaders of both teachers and students. The professionalism and dedication of both faculty and staff are also notable. Seventeen percent of FRA s faculty has been with the academy 15 years or more. Sixty-four faculty members and administrators hold master s degrees; five faculty members hold the degree of Ph.D. or Ed.D. The administration is responsible for hiring and evaluating teachers and staff. The division deans report to the Head of School and are responsible for promoting professional development for teachers at every level. In partnership with the Dean of Studies, the division deans also work to ensure that curriculum, training, and technology integration are in line with best practices. Also reporting to the Head of School are the Spiritual Life Director, the Director of The Center for Philanthropic Studies, the Director of Admission and Financial Aid, the Director of Finance and Facilities, and the Director of Advancement.

Terms are three years with the possibility of a second term. Board composition is reviewed regularly. Alumni Association. With more than 2,100 alumni in Tennessee and beyond, the Alumni Association is celebrating 42 years of Franklin Road Academy. A newly appointed Director of Alumni is responsible for keeping alumni connected to their school. Homecoming, reunions, and an annual golf outing are sponsored by the Alumni Board. Athletic Boosters. A not-for-profit organization of parents, teachers, administrators, and community members, the Athletic Boosters provide valuable support for the 53 Panther teams.

LOCATION, CAMPUS, AND FACILITIES Franklin Road Academy is enviably located on a stunning 57-acre campus in a southern suburb of Nashville. Known as both the Athens of the South and Music City, Nashville is a destination of many delights. While famous for the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame, Nashville is also home to a full-scale reproduction of the Parthenon, located in Centennial Park; the Tennessee State Museum; Vanderbilt University; and The Hermitage, once the residence of President Andrew Jackson and his family. 4

5 Rich in history and culture, Nashville this year has received such accolades as America s Next It City (The New York Times), America s Next Boomtown City (AOL Jobs), and the nation s Friendliest City (Travel + Leisure). Condé Nast Traveler also named Nashville among the top five Best Places To Go in Franklin Road Academy s proximity to this vibrant, cosmopolitan city is a particular asset. The area has grown exponentially. Between 2000 and 2010, the population grew more than 22 percent. During the past 10 years, partially because there is no state income tax, the world headquarters of some of the world s largest companies have relocated to the region, including Nissan North America and LP Building Products. Poised for its own growth in families and donors, FRA sits in the middle of the two wealthiest counties in the State of Tennessee. The campus is beautifully situated, with impressive buildings and striking amenities. It boasts a Fine and Performing Arts Center that includes a 600-seat theater space. FRA has a lovely library/media center and hands-on science laboratories for all grades. Athletic facilities include four gymnasiums, a football stadium (with a new turf field), a baseball stadium, a soccer stadium, a softball field, tennis courts, a weight room, and a new track with a turf infield. HIGHLIGHTS OF THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM Franklin Road Academy s academic program is designed to instill a lifelong love of learning, and to develop scholars with integrity and balance. Cultivating a vibrant and purposeful learning environment is central to the school s mission. Each division values the learning process, not just performance. Academy teachers and staff work together to oversee a rigorous academic program delivered in the context of rich relationships. From an early age, FRA students are encouraged to spend time playing sports, playing instruments, and playing roles in school performances in ways that complement rather than compete with their academic programs. The college preparatory program in an ecumenical Christian atmosphere nurtures students as they navigate a traditional curriculum that embraces technology and 21 st century skills. A technology team ensures that emerging technologies are investigated and integrated into classrooms school-wide. There is an academy-wide wireless and wired network with 100 MB fiber Internet connection. The school has been among the leaders in Tennessee in creatively using technology to enhance the learning experience. This includes 120 faculty and staff laptops, more than 200 tablet PCs for Lower School use, and more than 600 student-owned tablet PCs. Every student in grades 5-7 has an ipad and students in Pre-K3 to 4 have access to ipads and tablet PCs. There is a one-to-one student/computer ratio in grades Interactive whiteboards, document cameras, scanners, digital cameras, and ipads for faculty and student use provide additional resources. Classes in every subject and grade level offer opportunities to practice technology skills in a safe environment with appropriate digital limitations and expectations for digital citizenship. EARLY CHILDHOOD PROGRAM Franklin Road Academy s youngest learners enjoy a PreK-Kindergarten program serving children as young as age three. Play is central to learning, and teachers in the Early Childhood classes collaborate to create a joyful and creative educational experience. In addition to the core curriculum, students will encounter technology, world 5

6 languages (French & Spanish), S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) lab, art, performing arts, physical education, and library. Daily Bible stories reinforce the FRA mission. THE LOWER SCHOOL Lower School students at Franklin Road Academy are challenged to become responsible and independent learners in a safe, supportive, and lively learning environment. The curriculum seeks to instill a love of learning and positive attitude toward school and the learning process. Lower School teachers recognize each child as a unique individual with special gifts and talents, encouraging each one to reach his or her potential. The Lower School curriculum provides a solid foundation in the fundamental areas of reading, language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. Good citizenship is a key priority, as is the development of creativity. Performing Arts, Art, Technology, French, Spanish, Library Skills, and Physical Education are offered as curricular enrichment. THE MIDDLE SCHOOL FRA s Middle School program is designed to address the unique developmental requirements of fifth-, sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade students. Strong relationships help students develop positive self-image, academic confidence, and personal growth. The Middle School seeks to serve as the social and educational bridge from Lower School and then again to Upper School. In keeping with the mission of FRA, the Middle School provides an environment where students can grow intellectually, culturally, physically, socially, and spiritually. The curriculum is divided into the areas of Humanities through Literature; Humanities through History; Mathematics; Science; and World Language. Pre- Algebra is offered to qualified students in the seventh grade. Algebra I and Advanced Physical Science are offered to qualified students in the eighth grade. Enrichment courses include drama, vocal music, band, art, and religious studies. Physical Education/Personal Development classes include teaching healthy choices. Technology is integrated throughout the curriculum. THE UPPER SCHOOL At Franklin Road Academy, the Upper School prepares its students for college and for life beyond school. In addition to academic excellence, the Upper School encourages a commitment to spiritual values, leadership, service, and citizenship. In keeping with FRA s mission, the Upper School faculty helps students find balance in their curricular and co-curricular lives. The academic program emphasizes fundamentals of English, including grammar, literature, composition, and vocabulary; mathematics; science; and social studies. Two consecutive years of Latin or a modern world language are required. Advanced Placement courses may be offered in United States History, European History, World History, English Language, English Literature, French Language and Culture, Spanish Language, Spanish Literature, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Latin Vergil, Studio Art, Statistics, Calculus AB, and Calculus BC. Honors courses are offered in most subject areas. Technology is integrated throughout the Upper School program as well. GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS Students entering the ninth grade are required to complete 24 units for graduation, including: four units of English; four units of Mathematics; three units of Science; three units of History; two units of the same World Language; one unit of Religious Studies; one unit of Physical Education; one unit of Fine or Performing Arts; a half unit of 6

7 Technology; and four and a half units of elective coursework. In addition, students must complete 20 hours of community service. Students also have the unique opportunity to participate in special programming during Interim, the four days before spring break: Each faculty member sponsors a class trip, internship, job shadow, or service project designed especially for students. ACADEMIC SUPPORT SERVICES AND SPECIAL PROGRAMS Advisory. Middle and Upper School students benefit from a strong advisory program that is coordinated by the counselor in each division. Faculty members lead groups of eight to ten students, meeting daily for 20 minutes. Topics range across academics, college planning, social life, spiritual life, service, and school culture. In an effort to develop and strengthen meaningful relationships between students and teachers, and across peer groups, the program is continually evaluated. After School Enrichment. A wide array of programs is offered to Lower and Middle School students, adding to FRA s Extended Day. These enrichment programs are offered by faculty and experienced professionals, and range from Mandarin Chinese and robotics to golf, fiddle, and comic creations. The program encourages students to explore and develop new areas of expertise. ASPIRE. In an effort to meet the academic learning needs of all students, Franklin Road Academy has instituted the ASPIRE (Accelerating Student Progress with Individualized instruction, Rigor and Enrichment) program. The role of ASPIRE is to support and enhance the academic experience of all students in grades pre-k through 12, while directly serving students who have documented learning differences as well as students achieving at extraordinarily high levels. The ASPIRE team, which consists of a director, Lower and Middle School coordinators, and writing and math lab coordinators, falls under the auspices of the Dean of Studies. Heart to Heart. In a thoughtful, non-diploma program, students with Down syndrome are enrolled in an individualized program directed by a full-time special education teacher. While Heart to Heart students pursue core curriculum courses in their own classroom, they also participate in standard classes with their typically developing peers. Their Heart to Heart teacher works to adapt assignments for academic classes. In addition, the students participate in enrichment classes, lunch, and physical education classes with their assigned grade levels. Admissions priority for the program, which includes four students this year, is given to relatives of FRA community members. Nissan English Language Learning Program. In partnership with Nissan North America, Inc., FRA has created an ELL (English Language Learning) program that integrates French and Spanish speaking students into the academy's college-preparatory program. These students must be qualified for admission to FRA. SPIRITUAL LIFE AND SERVICE FRA Spiritual Life strives to develop students of integrity with Christian values to sustain and lead them in lives that will make a difference. The Director of Spiritual Life oversees a comprehensive program that includes both curricular offerings and opportunities for individual and community expressions of faith. In grades 5-12, religion courses enhance the curricular offerings. Lower School students explore major Biblical themes and stories that connect to FRA s core values. Students in grades five and six are required to take Exago, a course that emphasizes the development of Christian leaders; Exago blends lessons with a hands-on ropes course. Seventh- and eighth-graders may take an elective course on Biblical leaders. In the Upper School, students take two semester-long courses in Religious Studies with options ranging from Old and New Testament Surveys to Faith and Film. Students also participate in an annual Spiritual Emphasis Week. Upper School students have the chance to participate in Mission trips during interim. Additionally, through the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Young Life (Upper School), and Wyldlife (Middle School) campus organizations, students are given the opportunity to participate in retreats and summer camps. Special FRA Spiritual Life traditions include the legacy verse eighth- 7

8 graders leave for their fellow Middle School students, a reminder of a Biblical value they hold dear. Similarly, the senior class chooses a Bible verse at the beginning of each school year, a potent reminder of what their years at FRA have meant to them. The Center for Philanthropic Studies. In fall 2011, Franklin Road Academy established The Center for Philanthropic Studies, an initiative that oversees programming in community service, philanthropy education, and service learning for all FRA students. Made possible by a generous private gift, The CPS builds on the spirit of giving and the faith in action that have long been key components of the school. Students are encouraged to share their time and talents in a variety of activities that enrich their academic and spiritual lives. They lead and participate in a variety of service opportunities such as Crafts for a Cause, Service Learning Units, All-Academy Service Saturdays, Mission Trips, Senior Habitat Build, and Philanthropy 101. FRA Upper School students recorded 3,500 hours of community service during the school year. The Turner Fellowship. The Cal Turner Family Foundation annually sponsors a fellowship program at FRA, offering students an opportunity to serve in partnership with a Nashville-area nonprofit organization. Rising seniors with an outstanding academic record who demonstrate a commitment to community service, personal integrity, and a desire to make a difference may apply for the fellowships, which provide a six-week summer internship with a stipend. The organizations receive matching contributions from the foundation. Turner Fellows may also be eligible for a Turner Scholarship to the colleges of their choice. Eleven members of the Class of 2013 served as Turner Fellows. ATHLETICS Franklin Road Academy is home to an extensive athletic program. Student athletes learn the importance of teamwork, sportsmanship, competitiveness, and fair play, and how to act with respect and dignity, both in victory and defeat. Fifty-three teams are fielded each year at the Varsity, JV, and Middle School levels. The Upper School offers baseball, basketball, bowling, cross country, football, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, track, volleyball, and wrestling, as well as cheerleading, ice hockey, and swimming. The Middle School offers teams in most sports as well, with football and track offered to the fifth and sixth grades, along with opportunities to participate in community sports leagues. Five years ago, Franklin Road Academy made the decision to switch from Division I to Division II of the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association, a move that enabled the school to offer need-based financial aid to Upper School students who play athletics. Since 1971, FRA teams have won 22 TSSAA state championships. More than 20 percent of the students from the Class of 2013 are playing sports at the college level, competing in baseball, basketball, football, golf, swimming, and tennis across nine collegiate athletic conferences. 8

9 THE ARTS The arts are central to the experience of FRA students and the community. Creative course offerings in drama, instrumental and vocal music, and the visual arts complement extracurricular opportunities in these areas. Technology enhances student work in music composition and music rehearsal. FRA s commitment to the arts has allowed the choral, instrumental, visual arts, and dramatic arts programs to flourish. Throughout the year, student talent is showcased in a range of venues including a fall drama production; spring musical; Cocoa and Carols (a holiday talent performance); the second grade Christmas musical; Grandparents Day; the fourth grade variety show; seasonal band and chorus concerts; regional and local competitions and festivals; and home football games featuring choir and band performances. FRA has an award-wining Jazz Ensemble as well as as a renowned Vocal Ensemble. OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES FOR THE NEXT HEAD OF SCHOOL The next Head of Franklin Road Academy will join a warm and caring community that is poised for a new chapter. The new Head of School will have the opportunity to build upon more than a decade of visionary leadership by Dr. Margaret Sissy Wade that has witnessed an extraordinary campus expansion and a multitude of program initiatives. FRA will welcome as its next Head a similarly visionary leader who will embrace the school s mission and affirm its commitment to academic excellence across all dimensions of the educational experience. The dedicated Board of Trustees and the senior administrative team have demonstrated an openness to selfexamination and an eagerness to take the steps necessary to position Franklin Road Academy for long-term success. The next leader will benefit from resources including the Strategic Plan; the 2012 SAIS/SACS(AdvancED) accreditation self-study and visiting team report; a Marts and Lundy enrollment study conducted last year; and an organizational analysis prepared by a Nashville nonprofit consulting firm this past summer. The school will be well served by a leader who can synthesize all of these valuable perspectives to create a roadmap for the next phase in FRA s impressive history of growth and progress. Among the specific opportunities and challenges awaiting the next Head of School are the following: MISSION, ADMISSIONS, AND MARKETING Like so many independent schools in this challenging economic climate, Franklin Road Academy finds itself in an increasingly competitive educational marketplace. While the school s impressive facilities can accommodate up to 1,000 students, enrollment has fluctuated from a high of 969 in 2006 to a low of 712 currently. FRA s leadership has been proactive in responding to this challenge, including commissioning an enrollment study from an outside consultant last year. An uptick in admissions inquiries for this school year provides cause for optimism that the 9

10 school is on the right track. The next Head of School will be expected to place the highest priority on the continuing work to position Franklin Road Academy for steady enrollment growth in the years ahead. FRA s unique appeal in the Nashville independent school community is its balanced approach to academics, arts, and athletics within an environment grounded in Christian values. Not surprisingly, families bring to the school a broad range of opinions about the relative importance of each of these pillars. Partly as an outgrowth of the leadership conversation last spring about how best to market the school, debates about FRA s expression of its Christian identity and its approach to athletics rose to the fore. Some valued members of the community chose to leave the school, and enrollment was negatively affected. While this was a painful period in the life of this close-knit family school, the positive result has been a strong recommitment to FRA s enduring values at the Board and administrative levels. The school s next Head will join a school community that is eager to move forward and clear about its direction. The new leader will play a vital role in articulating and defending all aspects of the school s stated mission, particularly its inclusive Christian spirit and its dedication to rigorous academics as an essential component of FRA s heritage and identity. THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM Having already begun important work on curriculum mapping and the integration of 21st century skills into the educational program, the FRA faculty will look to the new Head for an educational vision and a continued focus on academic excellence. Initiatives the next Head might pursue include expanding professional development opportunities for faculty; enhancing the Academy s tradition of being a pioneer in educational technology; and challenging students to maximize their college choices by pursuing a rigorous course of study. The three division deans, who have already made significant contributions to the academic program since joining the school last year, will be invaluable to the new Head in these endeavors. FINANCE AND DEVELOPMENT To solidify its stature as one of Nashville s premier independent schools, Franklin Road Academy also needs to build its endowment, now valued at $2.9 million. Like virtually all independent schools, FRA is experiencing increased financial need within its applicant pool. To further enhance the extraordinary campus, a new dining hall and Lower School facility upgrades are also on the wish list. In addition to strengthening the school s program, these improvements have the potential to aid in the recruitment of young families into the earliest grades. As a result, fundraising will be an important component of the new Head s role. The school has demonstrated that it can call upon a generous body of donors, most recently in completing the $12 million campaign that helped to fund the functional and attractive campus. A planned giving program has also been successful, generating more than $7.5 million in projected future support for the school. In the years ahead, Franklin Road Academy will increasingly look to its alumni, a relatively young and untapped base of donors, while also encouraging parents to participate more actively in annual giving. The next Head s charge will include the hiring of a new Director of Advancement, a currently vacant position whose responsibilities include oversight of the development, admissions, communications, and marketing functions. 10
