Peace & Blessings from Dr. Mama

Take a deep breath! Just when you thought 2020 could not get more stressful, here comes a nail biting too close to call presidential race in the midst of a pandemic.  It has been so hard not to be filled with anxiety and stress.  It is so important in times such as these that you take extra steps to do two things:  First, take care of yourselves.  There are few things harder than being a parent and needing to explain a tipsy-topsy world to your children.  We can only do that by staying calm, staying hopeful, and staying open to their questions and concerns.  Make time to meditate, journal, do yoga, garden, listen to soothing music, dance, or do whatever brings you bliss.  You can only provide continuous support for your children if you are replenishing yourself!  We would love to help you with self-care and intend to offer another series this year through our Title One parent program focused on self-love and self-care for parents.  Be on the look-out for our flyer and survey.

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.
