MONTGOMERY COUNTY

You give children the tools needed to succeed.

Freedom Schools
Provides free summer literacy enrichment that helps children fall in love with reading, boosts their self-esteem, and generates more positive attitudes toward learning. Freedom School students average a two month gain in reading skills through the program. In the six years since Freedom Schools began we have invested $2.5 million into our future leaders and over 2,000 scholars have improved their reading skills.
