Freedom Schools

The mission of the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) is to ensure every child a healthy start, a head start, a fair start, a safe start and a moral start in life and successful passage to adulthood with the help of caring families and communities.

The CDF Freedom Schools® program provides summer and after-school enrichment through a research-based and multicultural program model that supports K-12 scholars and their families through five essential components: 

  • high quality academic and character-building enrichment;
  • parent and family involvement;
  • civic engagement and social action;
  • intergenerational servant leadership development;
  • and nutrition, health and mental health.

This year, DECA is offering Freedom Schools to all rising 1st - 8th grade at DECA PREP.

This is a first come first serve format
