At Franklin, athletics are an important part of building a culture and providing opportunities for students to develop leadership, persistence, collaboration, and ethics, as well as the opportunity to experience success and failure. Students at multiple levels have the opportunity to discover their potential as athletes and members of a team.

- Soccer (MS & HS)
