    Freedom Schools Summer Program Coming Again to Rainier Beach High School!
    Posted on 05/09/2018

    Greetings Rainier Beach Family!

    WA-BLOC is actively recruiting 60 rising 9th and 10th graders for this summer’s CDF Freedom Schools Program at Rainier Beach High School! This will be the FOURTH consecutive summer of Freedom Schools at RBHS and we are so excited to have another opportunity this summer to build with scholars and families and prepare them for the upcoming school year!

    Below please find links to our 2018 program flyer and enrollment form. This program is completely FREE for scholars and includes amazing incentives (see below!)  Enrollment forms are due Friday, June 1st! Scholars can pick up/return completed forms in Success City/RM 265!


    WA-BLOC’s CDF Freedom Schools is a six week, high impact program that halts summer learning loss, fosters positive identity and belonging, prepares scholars for the upcoming school year, and builds leaders of change (BLOC).  Last year scholars experienced:

    • Over 200 hours of high impact literacy and enrichment
    • 100% of scholars gained or maintained academically and DID NOT experience summer learning loss
    • Average 20 month (two school years!) growth in instructional reading levels
    • Increased positivity towards identity, growth mindset, and attitude towards education

    This program is for students who:

    • Are rising 9th and 10th grade scholars who will be attending Rainier Beach High School in the Fall
    • Are able to commit to full six week program Mon-Friday July 9th-Aug 17th (90% attendance is required)
    • Would benefit from extra support in academic, social/emotional, leadership development in their transition to high school


    • FREE!
    • .5 ELA and elective credits
    • Up to 20 Service Learning hours
    • Up to $300 back-to-school scholarship
    • Weekly field trips
    • Breakfast/lunch/snacks
    We all look forward to spending another summer with our wonderful scholars!
