Franklin Area School District to Offer an Updated Cyber Option for Families

In the 2022-2023 School Year

Franklin, Pennsylvania: The Franklin Area School District (FASD) is updating their cyber school for families for the 2022-2023 school year. The Franklin First Learning Academy (FFLA) started last year and was available for students in grades K-12. FFLA offered a 100% online and digital curriculum in a virtual learning model. Instruction will be provided with a new, enhanced, and research-based curriculum that is aligned to the PA Core Standards. Respectively, FFLA is partnering with Warren County School District to offer a rigorous curriculum that has been time-tested for over a decade. Each course is supported by Pennsylvania-certified teachers.  

With these exciting upgrades, the newest and most exciting change is that FFLA will offer live sessions in addition to its regular, self-paced platform. Elementary school (K-5) will have live Zoom sessions for students in English and mathematics. The middle school (6-8) will have live Zoom sessions in English, mathematics, science, and social studies. With the live sessions, all students’ needs and learning styles will be met which will ultimately improve student success.  Even the high school will continue with its flexibility as to when they can complete coursework (self-paced and accelerated) including live sessions throughout the year.    

As in the past, students attending the FFLA receive FASD credits and an FASD diploma. Students are eligible to participate in FASD extra-curricular activities and sports. In addition, students can elect to attend the local vocational school and programs.  

High school students can opt to enroll full time in the Academy or to supplement their course schedule with virtual courses. This will allow students access to courses not typically offered in high school, the opportunity to accelerate and challenge their learning, and opportunities to remediate areas of need. This new and enhanced model will provide room for growth, opportunity, and innovation as it grows annually.

Enrollment information for the FFLA will be available soon. A family information night is scheduled for August 16th at 6:00 p.m. at Franklin Area high school auditorium. For more information or questions, please call Mr. John Bianconi, FFLA Administrator, at 814-432-2121 or by email at
