Freedom Prep Academy

A charter school focused on preparing kids for college and life

Founded in 2009 with five existing schools in Memphis, Tennessee, Freedom Preparatory Academy is opening its first tuition-free public charter school in Birmingham.

The school’s vision is to transform the lives of Black and brown students across the South by preparing kids in pre-k through the 12th grade to excel in college and in life.

We are currently renovating the former Our Lady of Fatima School building, originally part of the oldest African-American Catholic Church in the Birmingham Catholic Diocese, to house the new Freedom Prep Academy campus opening in Fall 2024.
