ED Corps is all about relationships. Our dedicated faculty and staff assist each student to develop a path to graduation with customized class schedules that leverage the individual’s learning style.
“We have learned that many students respond well to learning with a hands-on approach. We spend about a third of our time outdoors, exploring environmental restoration and conservation projects, learning conservation skills, and mitigating potential disasters. These activities bring the relevance of academics into real life experiences” comments Elinor Mount-Simmons, veteran educator and ED Corps Administrator.
As a private school, ED Corps High School accepts students begining at 16 years old. Thanks to a partnership with STEP UP FOR STUDENTS, all students are eligible for scholarships to attend ED Corps High School. The scholarships cover the annual tuition which is $13,152.40 ($13,211.00 for graduating Seniors). Parents must complete the Step Up for Students application as part of the enrolment process.

Students aged 17 and older are eligible to participate in the Opportunity Youth Service Initiative provided through Franklin’s Promise Coalition by the Corps Network and AmeriCorps.
