What is the Social Justice Academy?
A collaborative effort between
The Clark Elementary School (Selma City Schools) and deeply
invested community stakeholders, the Social Justice Academy
is an innovative, experiential learning model that actively infuses the
principles of social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion
into the year-long
instructional and cultural experiences of all students
(Grades K to 5) on the campus of The Clark Elementary School.
The mission of The Clark Elementary School's Social Justice Academy
is to equip and empower our youngest scholars with knowledge,
tools, and skills necessary to become transformational young leaders
and agents of social change within our school community; our local city
of Selma, AL; throughout our Black Belt region, and beyond. Our Social
Justice Academy also drives high academic achievement and affirms the
cultural heritage and identity of the students we serve.
The vision of the Social Justice Academy at The Clark Elementary
School is the nurturing of critical thinkers, writers, and speakers who
leverage their individual gifts and talents for social good.
