  • CDF Freedom Schools Summer Program

    Saint Paul Public Schools CDF Freedom School is a free, six-week summer program for scholars currently in grades K-8.

    The CDF Freedom Schools program is a research-based educational and cultural enrichment program. The program serves children in current grades K-8 for 6 weeks and integrates reading, conflict resolution, and social action in an activity-based curriculum to promote social, cultural, and historical awareness. Participation in Freedom Schools provides enriching group activities, including field trips, culturally affirming materials, a well-trained and caring staff, and parent involvement, with an emphasis on literacy, math, leadership development, and college and career readiness.

    New in 2023 is a CDF Freedom School Credit Recovery Program for African American males in grades 10-12 who need to recover lost credits in Social Studies or English. Participants complete courses while also being employed at CDF Freedom School through the Right Track Program. Space is limited. Dates for Credit Recovery are M-F, June 26 - Aug 18.

    Saint Paul Public Schools’ Freedom School programs are provided in collaboration with many individual, public, and private partners.
