• The College Prep Center (*now located in Room 263) on the Franklin High School Campus is a partnership of the University of Rochester's David T. Kearns Center for Leadership and Diversity in Arts, Sciences and Engineering and Office of Enrollment, Franklin High School.

    The College Prep Center works to empower all students at Franklin High to realize their academic and career potentials through preparation for successful college enrollment. All students at Franklin will see themselves as potential college students, and have access to accurate and relevant information about the process of preparing for and successfully enrolling in college with appropriate financial aid and scholarship assistance.



    The Center creates interactive programming to reach out to all students at Franklin High School. Programming takes place within the school and in the community. Partnerships with community members, local colleges, and business leaders allow for college and career immersion experiences.
