Welcome to Freedom School at UNC Charlotte!  The Forty-Niners proudly hosted its first Children's Defense Fund Freedom School© during summer 2010 in collaboration with Freedom School Partners, Inc. and Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools.

The Freedom Schools program provides summer and after-school enrichment that helps children fall in love with reading, increases their self-esteem, and generates more positive attitudes toward learning.

The UNC Charlotte Freedom School

At UNC Charlotte, our Freedom School program brings together the resources and talents of the university with the energy and enthusiasm of our Freedom School Scholars--students in grades K-8 from CMS schools in our community.
