Since 1968, Freeman Academy has been recognized as a related body of the 
Northern District Conference of the General Conference Mennonite Church. In 1987, Freeman Academy was accepted
as a member of the Mennonite Secondary Education Council and now participates in its regular
administrator meetings, biennial teacher convention and board workshop, and annual music festival. 

Freeman Academy operates under a private corporation consisting largely of various members
of Mennonite churches. However, since its inception, the corporation and school participation has always
included other denominations. There are no barriers of race, nationality, or creed.
