Freedom School 2024

Dedicated to Providing a Safe, Fun Learning Environment for Our Children for the Summer

About the Program

The Freedom School @ The Mark is a summer program that runs for 6 weeks in partnership with the Children's
Defense Fund (CDF) Freedom Schools. It offers a multicultural curriculum and activities to prevent summer
learning loss, bridge achievement gaps, and create confident, well-read children ready to positively impact 
their families, communities, nation, and the world. The program is open to students entering grades K-5. It includes five key components: high-quality literacy enrichment, parental and family involvement, civic engagement and social action, leadership development across generations, and nutrition, physical, and mental health.
