    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.

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