Welcome to


an independent school for Black girls


I believe unconditionally in the ability of people to respond when they are told the truth. We need to be taught to study rather than believe, to inquire rather than to affirm.

– Septima P. Clark

Our Mission

Named for educator and activist Septima Poinsette Clark, the Septima Clark Academy provides academic curricula and enrichment programs, exposure, and experiences that serve the needs and whims of developing scholars. From the environment to the methods, we lean on the concepts and philosophies of women pioneers in education and activism to steward the scholastic journey of young scholars in Jackson, Miss., with a student-centered approach to help guarantee their greatest outcomes.

Our Aims


We aim to cultivate opportunities for families to exercise agency in their child’s educational journey.


We aim to implement curricula that honor the scholar’s present scholastic development while also bolstering her academic growth.


We aim to create an environment where Black girls and boys can become autonomous learners surrounded by a close-knit team of supporters.


We aim to create space for our scholars to intentionally engineer their own personal development and build meaningful relationships with peers.

Our Programmatic Structure

There are currently three components to SCA’s programmatic structure: education consulting, parent seminars, and our independent school for grades 6-9. 

Education Consulting

For parents and caregivers of our scholars and the children in their communities, we lend ourselves to listen, offer guidance and provide well thought out, individualized strategic academic plans to improve or enhance their child’s academic and social outcomes. 

We are preparing to invite new families to join our SCA family!
