Welcome to Ten Broeck Academy
We, the staff of Franklinville Central School, would like to welcome you and your family to your home at Ten Broeck Academy. We are very proud of our school, our traditions, and our community and though we are a small District we can provide each and every student with exceptional educational and extracurricular experiences. Because each student is an important member of our school community, our faculty and staff will work tirelessly to create a learning environment in which all students have the opportunity to experience their maximum level of success in all aspects of their school life as we help prepare them for their future.
We are a team, composed of individuals, who believe that by working in collaboration with parents and by investing our lives into your child’s life, we can help students realize their own unique potential. We are committed to the goal that all students can and should be contributive citizens; adults who own and have the capacity to use twenty-first century skills. It is our mission to provide each child with an educational experience, which will equip them with the requisite skills, knowledge, confidence, and vision to go forth and succeed in their next endeavor whether that challenge is college or to immediately enter a career path.
Finally, but most importantly, we want your child to feel safe and respected at Ten Broeck Academy. We will strive to make this place of learning one where each student believes they can come and grow, free from the fear of being ostracized or bullied for being unique. For you see, if a human being doesn’t feel safe they can only focus on protecting themselves and not on achieving their full potential. This is a promise I make to each student with whom I have the privilege of investing my life .
