    Education for Everyone: Alternative High School for Pushed-Out Youth

    FREE LA High School is a unique education program in South Los Angeles that supports system-involved youth in obtaining high school diplomas. Our students are primarily youth of color who have been pushed out of traditional schools through suspensions, expulsions and/or lock-ups, and are left with few options to complete their degree. Social justice organizing is integrated into our curriculum in order to equip youth with the skills necessary to work towards more just education systems.
