The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Academy of Social Justice focuses on standards-based, goal orientated, data driven, collaborative, and reflective approaches to learning. We believe ALL students can learn. Some of our after- school programs include tutoring, girl scouts, ball room dancing, sports, mentoring, computer, art, and cooking class. We also partner with Chicago Cares to provide Saturday programming.
