It's my honor and pleasure to serve as the Head of School at the Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School. 

I came to BFCCPS in 2004. I learned quickly that BFCCPS is a special place. Our unique mission, dedicated staff and faculty, curious and kinds students, and committed and collaborative parent community blend together to create a school experience among the best in the country.

The four pillars of our school, Character Education, Community Service, Classical Education, and Parents as Primary educator provide a lens for our decision making and inform our daily efforts. We believe every student can grow and thrive in an environment that educates the whole child.

We are so excited to be in our new facility and in our first year of expansion. We have many exciting events on our horizon and are eager to share how our BFCCPS traditions will continue. I want you to know our daily focus is on making the 2019-2020 school year a enjoyable and successful school year for each of our students.
At BFCCPS we believe that education is a partnership and that we are at our best when the school and home are working together. I encourage you to contact me anytime.
Thank you for choosing BFCCPS. 2019-20 is going to be our best year yet!
