2021 REGISTRATION INFORMATION
What is Freedom School?
Freedom School is a six week, literacy-based summer program. Freedom School encourages a love of reading and learning through a culturally diverse curriculum. The Integrated Reading Curriculum affirms our scholars with engaging literature and exposure to the broader community. In classrooms of 10-12, we hire college-aged students to teach and mentor our scholars. During the six weeks, we also encourage the parents of our scholars to be engaged in their child’s learning through informational meetings in the summer and multiple volunteer opportunities.
Who is eligible to attend Freedom School?
We serve children who are currently in Kindergarten through 8th grade at multiple locations around Charlotte. Each one of our Freedom School sites serves a particular school or community area. If your child attends one of the schools or lives in one of the communities that we serve, they may be eligible to register for Freedom School.
When does registration begin for Freedom School?
Registration for Freedom School begins in February for returning families. Children who maintain their eligibility are invited to register first. New scholar registration begins in March. We work with schools and community organizations to fill available spots at our sites.
