Kindergarten Program

Benjamin Franklin Charter School offers enriching free half-day and full-day Kindergarten program options. We believe that children are very capable and are ready to be challenged. In our program, students are taught Kindergarten level curriculum during the first semester of the school year where students are reading after a few months. Students are taught 1st grade level curriculum during the second semester of their Kindergarten school year and are prepared to learn 2nd grade level curriculum in their 1st grade school year.
