Whether your child needs a flexible schedule to accommodate athletic or artistic pursuits or has a unique learning need, homeschooling through Franklin is the optimal choice for alternative schooling. Using a fully accredited homeschool curriculum, we refer highly committed tutors who tailor instruction to the individual needs of each student. Students make significant academic gains while developing the skills and self-esteem needed for future success.

Franklin-referred tutors are content-area experts who provide individualized instruction and mentorship for the successful completion of each class.

Families frequently choose curriculum from Laurel Springs School, an accredited online, private, distance learning program. Through Laurel Springs, courses are available at all levels, from introductory to Advanced Placement. Work completed with a Franklin-referred tutor is submitted to Laurel Springs for grading, final reporting, and transcripts.

Dr. Franklin works carefully with each family to determine an individualized learning plan customized to the needs of your child.  We work with students who are taking full course loads, students who are taking only one or two subjects, and students who are taking advantage of their school’s independent study program for advancement or credit recovery.  Depending on the timeline for the completion of each class, instructors can assign homework or ensure that all assignments are completed together during sessions.

A K-6 personalized schooling program through Franklin can blend a traditional full-day school schedule with the exceptional gains that come from one-on-one learning. Franklin students receive one-on-one instruction in core academic subjects, such as language arts, history, math, and science. They also participate in group activities that include yoga, art, and drama. Educational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Social Skills Development, and Remedial Reading and Writing Instruction are also available on site during the school day.

Students in grades 6-12 prefer greater independence and flexibility.  Individualized learning plans for grades 6-12 students include a variety of subjects and skill levels to engage their curiosity and ensure they are working at the right pace for each subject. Our learning centers offer additional supplemental materials, opportunities for group projects, celebrations of birthdays and holidays, and a fun environment at lunch and break times.  Each student is encouraged to find his or her own voice and share it with our learning community.

Franklin Educational Services also provides school placement services for families seeking to transition from One-on-One schooling into traditional schools. Franklin-referred tutors and staff have in-depth knowledge of local public and private schools and provide a full range of consulting services.  Please email our Executive Director for more information at

  • We have used Franklin Educational Services for seven years. We have three children with ADD and various degrees of learning challenges. Dr. Franklin has provided wonderful academic managers / tutors who have provided our kids with tools and strategies to excel despite their challenges. Dr. Franklin does an exceptional job screening and training his academic managers / tutors. Each one has gone above and beyond what we have expected. They are responsible, highly qualified, easy to work with and caring. Our primary academic manager has worked with our children for the entire seven year period. We and our children adore her. Our two oldest are now going to excellent colleges and this simply would not have been possible without Dr. Franklin’s talented, highly qualified staff, who have changed their lives with their skill, genuine concern and dedication.

  • Franklin Educational Services has done an AMAZING job in helping my daughter, as well as many of my friends children.  I have used their services for well over 10 years and their support, guidance, expertise in getting coaches and tutors . Their employees and tutors are fantastic. They  are RELIABLE CARING, and BRIGHT, SUPPORTIVE, working with you throughout the  educational process. I f one coach or tutor is not the right fit they will immediately listen to your input and needs and find the right fit for the child’s progress. My daughter still feels close to several of her past coaches  and is thankful for their encouragement and support which gave her the confidence to push herself and succeed.

  • I have used Franklin Education’s academic managers for my own children for a number of years and have always been more than pleased with their professionalism and level of academic support. Franklin’s highly trained academic managers have a deep knowledge of their subject areas, as well as an understanding of different learning styles. As a psychotherapist, I refer to the company often. One of my clients also benefitted from their on-site one-to-one schooling program. I couldn’t offer a higher recommendation.

  • This past year, into the second half of the school semester our daughter was failing math.  We were puzzled by this because otherwise she’s a straight A student, but every test/quiz taken was a D or an F.  I should also mention she had math homework almost every night which would diligently be completed and turned in and received an A just for doing the work.  The teacher never reviews the homework so when we checked in with Jupiter Grades (she’s in public middle school), the system would show all A’s for homework and F’s and D’s on all tests and quizzes.  For whatever reason, our daughter was not absorbing the lessons being taught in class.  Facing an F in the subject and desperate for help we reached out to Franklin Education seeking a tutor.  I got a response almost immediately and after filling out some easy forms on-line and answering a few questions about our daughter academically, they matched us with the perfect tutor.  Our daughter immediately responded to her.  The tutor took the time to go over the math homework and explained how to solve the problems in a way that made logical sense.  After two sessions, our daughter aced her next test with an A+.  She ended up getting a B in the course which we will take, much better than an F, plus she had a long way to go since we were already deep into the second semester.  If we reached out earlier she would have earned an A+ in math.  We are counting on that A+ this next school year and Franklin Education and our beloved tutor will be by our daughter’s side again.

  • I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Daniel Franklin for the past three years as a teacher.  During this time, I have worked both as a homeschool instructor in the Brentwood Learning Center as well as an academic manager with students after school in their homes. My experience has been extraordinary! I have consistently found that Dr. Franklin and his staff are committed to excellence; they have always been incredibly supportive not only to the students and families for whom we provide educational services, but also to instructors.
