School Notes

  • 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 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.

We LOVE The Freedom School. It is truly diverse, unlike other private schools in the area. The work with kids where they are and bring them forward academically, spiritually, socially, emotionally. The Freedom School looks at the whole child, unlike most any other school you could find and deals with children on the basis that they are all doing the best they can and with help and encouragement, they can reach even greater heights.

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!
