Wings to Soar

The Freedom Institute is more than a high school. It offers a personalized learning model that empowers students to tailor their education to their unique interests and college and career aspirations. The Freedom Institute provides college and high school courses (including Freedom’s C5 curriculum), college prep, career prep, job placement, and internships. Freedom students will be well-prepared for their chosen post-graduation paths and ready for a lifetime of economic freedom.


You Gave Them Roots.
We’ll Give Them Wings.

Our students "Soar to Success" with our Success Coaches – trained, certified, highly experienced educators – who oversee and work alongside each student. Success Coaches are more than instructors. They are academic advisors, advocates, facilitators, career coaches, internship initiators, and mentors aligned with student-specific goals.

Freedom Learning Approach

Success Coaches make classes into engaging learning environments with traditional academic tools proven over time, such as debate, projects, discussion, and hands-on experiences/labs. The Success Coach is responsible for the student’s growth in confidence, engagement, fun in learning, and post-graduation success. These are our metrics, not just test scores.

Economic Freedom

With the guidance of Freedom’s committed faculty, our students are encouraged and enabled to identify and pursue their passions and interests, plot their life path, and ready themselves for the rigors and real-world rewards of life and career – in community with others. Students are encouraged to show their mastery of our C5 curriculum each semester. Those who succeed are paid cash for their success!
