 Mission and Vision

Sankofa Freedom Academy is a college preparatory K-12 freedom school that will build on the Philadelphia Freedom Schools model to increase literacy and numeracy levels throughout the community, promote respect for scholarship, servant leadership, conflict resolution, and cultural democracy. Through the use of African Centered and culturally responsive methodologies, Sankofa Freedom Academy will engender in its students, staff, and community a love for learning, pride in heritage and a commitment to personal and societal transformation. By operationalizing the adage, “each one / teach one”, Sankofa Freedom Academy Charter School will build intergenerational learning communities in which each and every person is responsible to learn in order to teach, and teach in order to build a better world.

Peace & Blessings from Dr. Mama:

Happy Holiday Kwanzaa!


DrMama

We wish each of our families a winter break that will be filled with opportunities families to gather together in love and unity. We pray that all of our families will be safe and protected and that our children will return to us happy, healthy, and ready to learn. Whether you are
Christian, Muslim, Yoruba, or have no particular faith, we hope that you will celebrate Kwan-zaa. Kwanzaa is a cultural holiday intended to join us together regardless of religious affiliation.

It starts December 26 and ends on January 1. Each day your family celebrates a principle of the Nguzo Saba: Umoja (Unity), Kujichagulia (Self-Determination), Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility), Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics) Nia (Purpose) Kuumba (Creativity), and Imani (Faith). Each of these principles guide our community. May these principles guide your family and be infused throughout our nation. May we remember the sacrifices of our ancestors and the richness of our history. Peace, Blessing, Love, and Happy Kwanzaa!
