Questions & Answers

Here are some answers to common questions.

Our first day of school is August 26, 2024. Our last day of school is May 22, 2025.

School days are Monday through Thursday from 8:30am to 2:30pm. See the school calendar for the full school schedule for the 2024-2025 school year.

Freedom Connections Academy uses abeka as the main curriculum for core academic subjects. At Freedom Connections Academy, we believe our teachers should be empowered to teach the content according to their experience and expertise and based on what is most effective and engaging with their students. Teachers get ample time for prepping, planning, and evaluating their instruction and student performance so that they can adjust the curriculum accordingly.

Students are in combined grade classes: grades 1 and 2, grades 3 and 4, grades 5 and 6, and grades 7 and 8. We limit spots with the goal of having 15 to 16 students per class. Our max for core academic classes is 18. For our afternoon enrichment classes, there are a few spots opened up to homeschool students. Our enrichment classes will be about 20 students per class. 

We do not require uniforms. We expect that students dress modestly and comfortably and in a manner that encourages them to be alert and focused for instruction. Closed-toed shoes are expected. Sneakers are highly recommended to allow for safe play during recess and fitness time.
