TECH Freire reimagines the college prep high school by blending state-of-the-art equipment and hands-on learning with the rigor of the time-tested Freire Schools liberal arts program to help each of our students truly thrive. We have a culture that demands excellence from our students while providing them the supports they need to achieve at high levels and prepare for college. Despite the impact that the pandemic had on student postsecondary plans across the country, TECH Freire’s Class of 2021 was accepted to at least 69 colleges and universities and earned over $2.9 million in college scholarships and aid.
TECH Freire is a school of many firsts. The first Freire school to feature makerspaces—complete with laser cutters, virtual reality and more—on-campus and fully integrated into the school’s curriculum. The first to form an Entrepreneurship Club in partnership with the Fox School of Business. The first to compete in the MESA (Mathematics, Engineering and Science Achievement) Challenge through a partnership with Temple’s College of Engineering. The list goes on—and there are many more firsts to come.
TECH Freire enrolls students from throughout Philadelphia, with a focus on students who live in the nearby Strawberry Mansion area. We work every day to be a true community school—an integrated and contributing part of our neighborhood.
