Franklin Road Academy Athletics
As part of an all-inclusive Christian community, FRA provides coeducational athletic programs for lower school through seniors in high school. FRA stress the importance of body and spirit, faith, character and sportsmanship. Franklin Road Academy competes as a DII Class A school, and is a member of the Tennessee Secondary State Athletic Association (TSSAA) at the high school level, and the Harpeth Valley Athletic Conference (HVAC) at the middle school level. 

The athletic program at Franklin Road Academy fosters transformational growth through a competitive athletic experience. 

Franklin Road Academy continues to build a strong tradition of academic excellence while offering a wide range of successful and important co-curricular activities including athletics. In keeping with the overall mission of the School, Franklin Road Academy’s student-athletes should use sports as a significant educational component in helping to grow mentally, physically and emotionally. Franklin Road Academy is very proud that its students have used the athletic program as means to advance to prestigious universities including Oregon, Columbia, Washington & Lee, Vanderbilt, The U.S. Naval Academy, and the University of Georgia among others. Our students also continue their participation in athletics both at the club level and as coaches after graduation.  It is the goal of Franklin Road Academy to provide opportunities for students to participate in a broad variety of interscholastic sports at the middle school, junior varsity and varsity levels. Franklin Road Academy believes in and supports the value of the multi-sport experience. We encourage broad participation by students and active faculty support.  

Athletic Development 
Participation, athletic skill development, and competitive team environments will each be used aspoints of emphasis based on the team level. Our middle school teams will place a heavier emphasis on participation and skill development, while our high school junior varsity teams will place emphasis more on athletic skill development and learning how to be competitive. Varsity teams will create more competitive team environments with a goal of excelling within region andstate competitions.  At all levels, but especially at the varsity level, playing time is not guaranteed, and is left to the coach's discretion in order to field a team that best represents Franklin Road Academy. Playing time is determined at the sole discretion of the coach. The levelof commitment and competition for playing time will increase as the student-athlete progresses through each level of participation.   At all levels, especially the varsity level, each coach must clearly and consistently articulate the expectations of a team member. Before each season, each varsity coach will define, with athletic director’s approval, the criteria for receiving an FRA varsity letter.
