The Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School is a regional public charter for students in Kindergarten through Grade Eight.  BFCCPS was founded in 1995 as one of the original 13 Charter Schools in the State of Massachusetts and 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 EducatorClassical EducationCommunity Service and Character Education.  (Please click on any of the links above for more information about each pillar.) 

Enrollment applications for the 2021-2022 school year at BFCCPS are now available.  BFCCPS will have 96 open spaces in Kindergarten for the 2021-2020 school year.  Applicants for Grades One through Eight will receive a waiting list position.  You can read about the enrollment policy and lottery procedures here.   

If you are interested in a school offering a Strategic Partnership with Parents, Rigorous Academic Program, Foreign Language Instruction, Commitment to Arts Education, Character Education, and Community Service Activities… we’d love to help you learn more about this opportunity!

BFCCPS moved into a new facility during the fall of 2019 and is now located at 500 Financial Park; the school’s gymnasium is now in construction (you can see ongoing gymnasium updates on our Facebook Page.)  Round trip regional transportation is available with bus stops currently in Bellingham, Blackstone, Franklin, Mendon, Medway, Milford, Plainville Walpole, and Wrentham. Transportation for families from Franklin is provided by the Franklin Transportation Department.

As you might expect, life at BFCCPS certainly looks a little different for the 2020-2021 school year. This year we are offering a Remote Academy for families wishing to remain a fully remote experience. We also have hybrid classrooms open for families requesting in-person education. You can read about our Fall 2020 Re-Opening plans here

Regardless of remote or in-person education, we are all one BFCCPS. All students regardless of mode of education have had a robust academic program with weekly instruction in the arts.
