Now in it’s fourth year, Freedom School is a seven week program that offers an exciting morning enrichment component using the award winning Children’s Defense Fund Freedom Schools Program curriculum.
Imagine a room full of children clapping, chanting, laughing and learning to fall in love with books & reading!
About Freedom School
Children are surrounded by caring adults and college age young adults (class room ratio of 1:10) who share an enthusiasm for learning and reading and commit to serving children as authentic mentors.
Throughout the seven weeks, approximately fifty-six high quality books supporting the theme I Can Make A Difference will be read and enjoyed. Children will be able to start their own libraries with books they receive to take home.
The afternoon program activities include Bible study, exciting assemblies, arts & crafts, dance, music, field trips, swimming and more. Children will also participate in a hands-on approach to problem solving and social action by responding to the feeling “I know what I would do if I could make the big decision.”
This day-long program will serve fifty children who have completed grades K-8. To benefit from all the activities we provide, children may arrive at 7:30 AM and remain until 6:00 PM.
Core program activities take place between 8:00 AM and 3:00 PM. The cost is affordable and no child will be turned away because of inability to pay.
No, this is not Summer School… It’s much better.
