Our mission is to provide an educational program that unleashes creativity and potential in our students, enabling them to realize their academic and professional goals, and empowering them to pursue 21st century careers. Our Vision is that upon graduation, all TECH Freire students will have a realistic and actionable post-high school plan and be prepared for their chosen next step.

Points Of Pride

TECH Freire offers a comprehensive liberal arts education through tech integration, with a special focus on real-world experiences and exposure. Tech integration is the combining of technology with traditional classroom subjects to deepen and broaden learning. Our model promotes personalized, creative, project-based learning in an environment that emphasizes the values of community, teamwork, and nonviolence.
