Freedom Home Academy wants to ensure that every child is treated justly. There are many values and principles that we feel are important for every Afrikan. We extracted a few that will serve as simple guidelines for children behavior at the Academy. We recognize that children have shifting behaviors at times as they learn more about themselves and growing. We will do everything we can to foster an environment of positive development and learning how to deal with change, emotion, and knowledge.

The IWA and It’s Code of Culture

Every people, working to replicate themselves progressively, positively and inter-generationally, needs guidelines, affirmations as to why they are and what they are supposed to be considering, leaving and practicing at each life stage in order to develop and maintain the quality of character their ancestors possessed.
