Freeman Academy is financially sustained by people like you -- generous leaders who appreciate the arts, culture and history and who believe in the educational mission of Freeman Academy.  Please consider making a donation.  Thank you.

Our Schmeckfest team and volunteers are taking a well deserved breather, but we're already discussing how we can make it even better in 2024.  Please re-visit this space as we lay out our plans for the future.
