Our Story

In March 2012, the New Jersey Department of Education approved Democracy Prep to turn around Freedom Academy Charter School, a perennially low-performing middle school in Camden, New Jersey. The new name, Freedom Prep Charter School, reflects an adoption of Democracy Prep’s mission, DREAM values, and successful instructional practices, as well as our tireless work to deliver the highest quality, college preparatory education to Camden’s scholars.

The Regional Office Team

The Freedom Prep Charter School Regional Team, stationed on the fifth floor of the Freedom Prep building, located at 1000 Atlantic Avenue in Camden, supports the elementary, middle, and high schools. The regional office team continues to emphasize and support a college-going culture for our scholars and enables all three schools to stay connected.
