Franklin Road Academy opens new student life center

Franklin Road Academy hosted a dedication ceremony Sunday, Aug. 11, for its new student life center on campus at 4700 Franklin Road, Nashville. The Weicker Center for Student Life is named in honor of former coach and teacher George Weicker, who died in 2016 after more than three decades at FRA.

The 38,400-square-foot building, which serves as a hub in the middle of campus for lower, middle, and upper schools, features a dining hall, classrooms, athletic spaces, the admissions office, campus security and more, according to a news release.

“The Weicker Center’s combination of dynamic academic areas, state-of-the-art wellness facilities, and purposefully-crafted common spaces is designed to build community,” FRA Head of School Sean Casey said in the release. “Whether sharing a meal, studying in small groups, enjoying a cup of coffee or a smoothie or taking advantage of new athletic spaces, students and families will have a space that helps build fellowship and supports the school’s commitment to provide one of the finest independent school educational experiences in the nation.”
