WELCOME TO WESTVIEW FREEDOM ACADEMY!
Westview Freedom Academy was created in November 2012 by GECDSB Trustees concurrent to their decision to close J.L. Forster Secondary School and transition the students to the Century Secondary School building for September 2014.
It was determined that this would be a new, comprehensive high school for Windsor's west side and a new name and identity would be required.
The name, Westview Freedom Academy, was chosen to conspicuously include reference to the area’s geographic location which is proudly referred to by residents as the “west end” or “west side”.
The term “freedom” was also suggested as a concept that could be considered, because of the area’s historical connection with the Underground Railroad and the fact that many recent immigrants to Canada have settled in the west end after escaping tyranny, oppression and conflict in their native countries.
