Policy of Non-Discrimination
The FreedomSchool admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
General Admissions Policy
The faculty and staff of The Freedom School are committed to meeting the needs of children who truly benefit from the education provided by the school. If the school cannot meet the needs of a child, the school will make recommendations to assist families in placing the child in the best educational environment. The final decision concerning admission of a student to The Freedom School is handled by the Head of School in consultation with the Board of Trustees. Nothing contained in this policy shall preclude a recommendation by the Head of School or Board that a student enroll elsewhere in the event of special needs or circumstances.
Children entering kindergarten must be five years of age by August 1st. In addition, children entering pre-kindergarten and kindergarten must take a screening test, such as the DIAL-IV, to be administered by faculty. Children who meet the age requirement for kindergarten, but who are found lacking in developmental readiness or maturity, may not be admitted or may be conditionally admitted. In such cases, the school is willing to recommend readiness activities for further development of the child.
As a condition to admission to The Freedom School, all financial accounts must be current prior to registration for the next school year. Parents of children enrolled in the school shall fully abide by the regulations and spirit of the school, cooperating with the teachers and administration in the development of the child(ren). Each parent shall agree to live up to the policies and parental expectations as outlined by the Parent Agreement. Each parent shall agree to live up to the financial commitments as determined by the Tuition Agreement. Parents of students are expected to provide volunteer service.
As a non-public school, The Freedom School reserves the right to deny admission or continued enrollment to any student if the school cannot satisfy the individual needs of the student and if the student does not comply with the school’s rules and procedures.
