About Oklahoma Freedom School Oklahoma City Freedom Schools Program Board of Directors

Freedom School Oklahoma City (FSOKC)

What is Freedom School Oklahoma City?

FSOKC is a not-for-profit summer literacy program. Serving children from underserved communities, our mission is to ensure each child has a healthy start, a head start, a fair start, a safe start and a moral start in life, with support of caring parents and nurturing communities of Oklahoma City. Utilizing an Integrated Reading Curriculum, Freedom School helps children develop a love of reading while increasing self-esteem and generating positive attitudes toward learning.

Who will be served?

Although varying from summer to summer, FSOKC provides instruction to 60 children (Grades 1st-5th) from underserved communities across Oklahoma County.

When is FSOKC scheduled?

FSOKC is a six-week summer literacy program that begins June 12, 2017 and concludes July 19, 2017.

Our program runs Monday through Friday, 8:00 am – 2:30 pm.
Children can only be dropped off after 7:45 am and children must be picked up by 2:30 pm.

*Freedom School will not meet on July 3-4, 2017.

Where will the summer program be located?

FSOKC operates out of space donated by Metro Technology Center Springlake Campus. Due to construction at the MCA this summer (Metro Career Academy, where the program has been held since 2013), we will hold our program across the street from the MCA at the ITC (Information Technology Center). The ITC is located at 1800 Springlake Drive, Oklahoma City, OK 73111.

What are the costs to participate?

FSOKC is a tuition free summer literacy program that relies exclusively on donations from corporate and individual donors. The cost of the program is approximately $775 per child to run the program. We enroll children completely at no cost to the parents or families. For this reason, parties wishing to contribute may do so by sending a contribution to:

PO Box 54364
Oklahoma City, OK 73154-1364
(All donations are tax deductible)
