College prep. High expectations. Supportive community. And a belief in every single student.

Does this sound like you? Freire Charter School Wilmington opened its doors in 2015 to provide a college preparatory education and is currently serving grades 8-11 (with our 12th grade classes added next year).

  • believe that constant self-reflection and growth is essential to improve their craft.
  • and believe in actively building a positive, enthusiastic, and collaborative school community.
