We started with a school called Freedom Community College that was established early in 1993 in order to serve the educational needs of largely the previously disadvantaged members of our society. It came up at the time when the idea of private education amongst our communities was gaining popularity. Initially it offered a broad curriculum to accommodate diverse career goals of learners, characteristic of a democratic, none racial education environment. The school has been very successful in delivering this curriculum blend; year-in- year out; large numbers have been enrolled and sat for matriculation examinations. The whole mark of our success as a school has been enviable average pass rate of 97% plus maintained since 2007.
Our mission is to provide disadvantaged, learning disabled children and youth with access to education; vocational skills training, employment opportunities, and necessary support services. Thereby facilitating their integration into mainstream society and providing them with opportunities to participate in the economy. The aimed outcome of our program is employable youth and young entrepreneurs.
