What We Do: The Freedom Academy Blog is an outlet for students at Freedom Academy High School to express themselves and post articles that capture their point of view. The goal of the blog is to help empower the students by giving them voice, enabling them to feel safe to open up and really talk. What Makes Our Blog Special: Articles submitted to the Freedom Academy Blog are created by students attending the school. Participating in the creation of the blog provides students with real world experience in web development and journalism. In addition to the experience they will gain from participating; our blog program is designed as an internship, fulfilling a requirement for students to graduate from high school. Featured on Freedom Academy Blog: The articles featured on this Blog are on the topics the interns discussed in class and spotlight activities they are involved with at school. Most of the articles focus on sharing the high school experience and capture what it's like to be a senior in a small failing Brooklyn high school. Please share our blog with others who might benefit from these ideas and who might enjoy participating in the conversation!
