flc buildingOur History

Founded in 1974, the Franklin Learning Center was the first public high school (Grades 9-12) in the Philadelphia School District to operate strictly on a competency based system. This means that each student received a credit for units completed in a class. When they have completed the required credits for that class, they were able to move on to the next course.

In 1992 and again in 2010, the Franklin Learning Center was recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School Of Excellence. FLC is one of very few schools in the Philadelphia School District to be so recognized, including it in the company of Central, Girls' High, and Masterman. Additionally, in 1997, FLC was recognized as a School of Excellence at the state level.

Programs of Study

FLC is divided into several progams of study. These are: Health Related Technology, Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Instrumental and Vocal Music, Drama, Business Technology, and Humanities.
