The Franklin School for the Performing Arts (FSPA) is a unique place where extracurricular programs in Music, Dance and Drama are offered – all under one roof -through private lessons, classroom instruction and extensive performing opportunities.
Proudly serving 1000 students every year from more than 40 surrounding communities, FSPA is committed to quality education in the arts, an exceptional curriculum and unwavering dedication to each and every student.
Founder, Raye Lynn Mercer of Franklin, Massachusetts is a firm believer that an education in the performing arts, whether or not pursued for a professional career, provides young people with lasting life skills and personal attributes, such as discipline, self-esteem, focus and a sense of teamwork, as well as superior communication and social skills. Whether a student at FSPA is conservatory bound or attends class once a week, essential to our model is that each student gains a sense of accomplishment and confidence to help achieve a lifetime of self fulfillment and happiness.
