Reopening Update:  Virtual School extended to March
Hotep Family! In July, we decided to do all remote learning for the remainder of 2020 with the hope of being able to open on January 4.  Unfortunately, due to the present surge in COVID-19, we are continuing our virtual school at least until March.  We will continue to provide virtual learning until there is a significant decrease in community spread and the positivity rate.  In our current newsletter, there is a chart that provides up to date information tracking COVID-19 in our community.  You also will see a chart that will guide our consideration for returning to the building.  Trust and believe, we all look forward to the day we can return to our building safely.  Until then, thank you so much for all you are doing to support your children and our school, as we continue to work together to provide the best education possible!  So until we meet again, please take care, stay safe and see you in cyber school on January 4.

Mission and Vision

Sankofa Freedom Academy is a college preparatory K-12 freedom school that will build on the Philadelphia Freedom Schools model to increase literacy and numeracy levels throughout the community, promote respect for scholarship, servant leadership, conflict resolution, and cultural democracy. Through the use of African Centered and culturally responsive methodologies, Sankofa Freedom Academy will engender in its students, staff, and community a love for learning, pride in heritage and a commitment to personal and societal transformation. By operationalizing the adage, “each one / teach one”, Sankofa Freedom Academy Charter School 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.
