High School students pursue a challenging program that prepares them for success in college and beyond. The curriculum includes several Advanced Placement and Honors courses.
Arts & Enrichment
Freedom Prep’s arts and enrichment programs are an essential part of the entire curriculum, whether through African drumming, theater, visual arts or various other programs. These opportunities help build character and perspective in ways that cannot always be achieved within traditional classroom settings.
We realize that playing sports teaches students skills that help build strong character, like team-building, self-confidence, dealing with achievement and disappointment. Our sports program is rapidly growing and is already producing winners outside of the classroom. Our Boys Ruby team is ranked among the top teams in the state! Our high school basketball team is now part of TSSAA. We are thrilled to welcome a football program to FPA for the 2017-2018 school year!
