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. 


Our Mission

is to equip and empower our youngest scholars with knowledge,

Justice Academy also drives high academic achievement and affirms the 

cultural heritage and identity of the students we serve.
