Dear friends of Libertas School of Memphis;
We are excited and humbled to pass along the news announced by the Achievement School District today: Libertas School of Memphis has been matched to phase-in at Brookmeade Elementary School here in Frayser, Memphis, Tennessee.
This announcement is the next important step in our journey - already 16 months-old - toward seeing private-school quality education available as a tuition-free public school in the neighborhood and city we love. Now we have the clarity needed to focus on engaging our soon-to-be families - continuing with those at Brookmeade, and extending to those across Frayser who wish for a rich, rigorous, and personalized education.
We salute the efforts of those dedicated educators and other community servants who have toiled so long in this field.
Stay tuned for more news in the months to come!

After being approved this summer, we are now working through the ASD's community matching process to find the right home in Frayser. One of the biggest factors in the ASD's decision will be the feedback of families and community members. You can help Libertas find a home! Please join us for just one hour next week to learn more, engage other families, and share your thoughts and support.
