YOUR PATH TO COLLEGE

We are incredibly proud of our high school team for their course catalog they have built to ensure our graduating seniors have the opportunity to leave with 30 college credits complete. This will allow our graduating seniors to enter college as sophomores! This will save our students from having to take introductory, general education classes in college. This will also save our students money in college. Each college credit hour at the University of Memphis and University of Tennessee costs $418. If a student earns 30 credit hours, they will save $12,540 in college tuition!

FREEDOM LESSONS

A hallmark of the Freedom Prep program is exposure to the arts, history, culture, and colleges in Memphis, the state of Tennessee, the mid-South, and around the United States.

Each quarter, our students will engage in a Freedom Lesson. While these may be called "field trips" at other schools, these off campus events are educationally-focused, empowering, and rooted in our students maximizing their learning opportunities.

DATES FOR 2022-23

  • Quarter One: September 9
  • Quarter Two: November 5
  • Quarter Three: February 4
  • Quarter Four: May 12
