About Freedom School 

Founded in 1995, the Freedom Schools Program seeks to build strong, literate and empowered children prepared to make a difference in themselves, their families, communities, nation and world today. By providing summer reading enrichment for children who might not otherwise have access to books, the program plays a much needed role in helping to curb summer learning loss and close achievement gaps.

The dynamic curriculum aligns with the Common Core Standards and includes science, technology, engineering and math (STEM education) activities. A 10:1 child-to-teacher ratio keeps the culturally relevant curriculum engaging.

Camp operates from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.; Monday through Friday; for six consecutive weeks in the months of June and July.
