Vision
The Freedom School welcomes children from all walks of life and frees their minds, hearts, and hands from the bonds of sin to serve one another and the oppressed around the world.

Mission
The Freedom School provides a safe, nurturing, learning community where children of different beliefs, races, ethnicities, and economic circumstances are reconciled to God and to one another by experiencing forgiveness by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. They are equipped by our knowledgeable and caring staff, using a research-based curriculum, to reach their unique potential as restored image-bearers and servant-leaders of God who steward his creation and proclaim his kingdom of righteousness through practical deeds of justice and mercy to those in their school, local community and around the world.

School Reviews

Unlike most schools in the St. Louis area, The Freedom school really is diverse (in terms of both race and economic background). The teachers are passionate about what they do, and Tim Baker, the head of the school is very accessible and up-beat. I feel my son gets a good quality education there, and we look forward to the Pinewood Derby every year!
