Employer Description

Freire Schools is committed to ensuring that every single student who walks through our doors has the opportunity to succeed and grow. We provide students in underserved communities a college-prep learning experience focused on individual freedom, critical thinking, and problem solving in an environment that emphasizes community, teamwork, and a commitment to peace. We are four distinct schools in two different cities, each guided by the same values of equity, diversity, love, and critical thinking.

Freire Schools students are confident, dynamic, and collaborative individuals. They are engaged in their communities, and excited to apply the skills and knowledge they acquire with Freire to create new possibilities for our futures. Of Freire Schools’ 2,000 total students, 89% are Black or Latinx, and almost all students qualify as economically disadvantaged. We combine high expectations with robust supports to provide each Freire student with the challenges and resources they need to succeed. 93% of 2019 Freire graduates were accepted to college, and 86% of college-enrolled Freire graduates persist to their second year of college (compared to the national average of 74%).
