BFCCPS is excited to commence our enrollment season for the 2019-2020 School Year! While historically BFCCPS has maintained a lengthy waiting list, this year’s enrollment process is your best chance at securing enrollment at BFCCPS in Grades K-5.
We will be adding two new classrooms for Kindergarten through Grade 5 as we open our brand new 72,000 square foot school. 92 spaces will be offered for Kindergarten and 40 new spaces will be offered in all grades Grades One through Five. Applications for Grade Six through Eight will be accepted as openings occur or will receive a wait list position.
What is the Charter of the Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School?
The Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School was founded in 1995 as one of the original 13 Charter Schools in the State of Massachusetts. BFCCPS was founded by a group of dedicated parents who were looking for a choice in their children’s education. This mission of our particular charter is as follows:
“Our mission is to assist parents in their role as primary educators of their children by providing students with a classical academic education coupled with sound character development and community service. Our mission is supported by four distinct, yet interconnected pillars that provide for a collaborative, rigorous education for all students. These pillars guide, direct and define the school in all it does.”
The BFCCPS Four Pillars are: Parents as Primary Educator, Classical Education, Community Service and Character Education. Please click on any of the links above for more information about each pillar.
How Does the Enrollment Process Work?
Priority in the lottery is given first to siblings of current students, then to residents in the BFCCPS region (Bellingham, Blackstone, Franklin, Holliston, Hopedale, Medway, Mendon, Milford, Millis, Milville, Norfolk, Plainville, Upton, Walpole, Wrentham) then to residents of Massachusetts outside of the BFCCPS region.
Applicants must be a resident of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts at the time of application to be considered for enrollment, and must reside in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts while attending the school.
Students who receive a wait-list number must re-apply annually to confirm their interest in sending their student to BFCCPS. In accordance with state regulations all applicants, even siblings, must re-apply annually. New application numbers and new wait-list assignments will be provided each year.
We encourage all applicants to review our Enrollment Policy for more details on the process.
Applications are accepted from November 1, 2018 through February 27, 2019 at 4pm. You can apply online, print and mail an application or stop by our office for a copy of a printed application.
We can not offer building tours during the school day in the interest of student safety and so as not to disrupt the learning environment. We will offer information sessions in January and February where you can meet with our school administration, teachers, parents and some of our middle school students.
This year’s sessions will not include building tours, because we will be moving to a new location for the 2019-202 school year! No RSVP is required to attend, and yes, you are welcome to bring your children along too!
Additional information sessions will be scheduled, please follow our Facebook page and website for additional dates as they are added to our calendar.
