Traditional Signature Program

Freedom Traditional Academy (FTA) is a “school of choice”  where the learning is accelerated and the instruction is back to basics.  Students at FTA must meet expectations for grades, behavior, and attendance.  All students will work one year above grade level in Saxon math and will have the opportunity to accelerate in language arts using Spalding methods based on student data. In addition, Spanish will be offered to all K-8 students and 8th grade students will have the opportunity to receive high school credit in math and Spanish.

FTA has a uniform policy, uses Character Counts for character education, and emphasizes patriotism and citizenship.
