Back-Office Business Services

Franklin Academy was inspired by the work of Ben Franklin, a founding father who personified the pursuit of excellence, discovery and creativity. Franklin Academy offers an outstanding and unique educational experience that promotes a culture of high expectations while emphasizing character development and adhering to the principle that all children can learn.

Since 2011, Franklin Academy’s five campuses have relied on Building Hope to provide quality, efficient back-office services in order for its business to excel at its mission: serving children.

With five campuses — soon to be six — in two Florida public school districts, Franklin Academy Charter School recognizes the importance of consolidating its back office support services.

Building Hope manages the academy’s day-to-day bookkeeping, accounts payable and receivable, payroll processing, human resources, and budgeting and forecasting. Its comprehensive array of services include handling compliance with school district reporting requirements (e.g., annual audits). Specifically, Building Hope offers the experience of certified public accountants, banking professionals and charter school leaders.

Today Franklin’s five campuses serve 6,175 students in kindergarten through eighth grade. The school will expand for the 2016-2017 school year by adding a middle and high school campus serving sixth through twelfth grade in Pembroke Pines.
