Franklin Academy – Cooper City Campus

Franklin Academy is proud to offer the residents of Broward County a K-12 system. Our newest campus will serve students in grades 6-12. Our spacious 40 acre campus is located near 5000 SW 207th Terrace, Pembroke Pines, FL 33332. The newly constructed 125,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility includes classrooms, specialty rooms for music, art, computer labs, large multipurpose room as well as science labs. Jogging paths with fitness stations located throughout; sports fields, a multipurpose field and a gymnasium with locker rooms will be located on a beautifully landscaped campus.

Our middle school curriculum (grades 6-8) focuses on the core academic areas of math, science, language arts and social studies. Enrichment classes provide Critical thinking skills which become increasingly important at this level of study. Our goal is to thoroughly prepare our students for the four years of high school that lie ahead.

Academics at the high school level (grades 9-12) are focused on college preparation including extracurricular clubs and activities which will assist in the growth and development of our students. Participation in team sports and clubs provide opportunities for leadership and excellence which are increasingly required for college admission.

Applications for the 2017-2018 school year can be submitted online.

Sibling Link

Students enrolled in grades 9-11 who have a sibling enrolled in grades 6-8 will be permitted to remain on campus in a supervised environment until their sibling is dismissed at 3:45 PM. Additionally, 6th through 8th grade students who have siblings in grades 9-11 may arrive on campus beginning at 7:15 AM with their 9-11 grade sibling. This is a no-cost service to our families.


Transportation is available on a limited basis. Franklin Academy offers transportation for students who live between 2 and 8 miles from the campus. If you live within two miles of the campus, you must provide transportation for your child(ren). If you live more than 8 miles from campus, Franklin offers “depot” stops, where families can bring their students to meet the bus. The “depot” stops are conveniently located near each of Franklin’s K-8 campuses located in Pembroke Pines, Cooper City and Sunrise. The “depot” stop transportation option is offered on a first come first serve basis, as space is limited.

Individual 2017-18 transportation results and routes will be available in July.

Private transportation companies are permitted as a transportation option for families, so long as the private transportation company follows Franklin’s pick-up & drop-off procedures. Franklin also offers a free carpool matching system to assist families to match with other suitable families for carpooling.

All bus passes (postcards) for all eligible students was sent out 8/11/17. Parents please be on the lookout for the bus pass (post card).
