Mission Statement

Sankofa Freedom Academy is a college preparatory K-12 freedom school, which builds on the Philadelphia Freedom Schools model to increase literacy and numeracy levels throughout the community while promoting respect for scholarship, servant leadership, conflict resolution, and cultural democracy. Through the use of African Centered and culturally responsive methodologies, Sankofa Freedom Academy Charter School seeks to close the excellence gap that persists between student performance and student potential. By employing liberatory pedagogical approaches, Sankofa Freedom Academy will build intergenerational learning communities in which each and every person is responsible to learn in order to teach, and teach in order to build a better world.
