Freire Wilmington’s goal for our students is “Graduation x2”—success in and graduation from not just high school, but college as well. Our unique five-year high school program, starting in 8th grade, gives students the time and support they need to catch up and then excel.
Freire Schools’ proven college-preparatory academic program offers Delaware students a much-needed free, high-quality educational option, and our 98% college enrollment rate far exceeds both the national average (68%) and Delaware’s state average (61%). On last year’s state tests, Freire Wilmington students had the third highest Reading growth scores of any school in the state of Delaware—and the 15th highest Math growth score in the state. 98% of Freire Wilmington’s Class of 2019 were accepted to college, with an average of more than 4 college acceptances per student—and students earned an average of $146,402 per student in scholarships and financial aid.
The Freire Wilmington community is a true family, where students and teachers work together to build the future each student wants and deserves.
