Social Justice Project

The Social Justice Project (“SJP”) is a performance based task where students will demonstrate their ability to question, research, lead, act, present, and reflect in order to confront a social injustice in their community. It is an example of synthesis, the assembling of critical elements of what the students learned in a new combination, product or other form.

Social justice is not a spectator sport. In order to pass the SJP, students must do the following:

  1. Identify a social justice problem in the community.
  2. Create an informed “Social Justice Action Plan.”
  3. Conduct activities that will attempt to solve the problems.
  4. Raise awareness in the broader community.
  5. Plan an raising awareness event or series of events.
  6. Analyze data throughout your project.

The Social Justice Project will be evidence of the students ability to fulfill the mission of Capital Preparatory Magnet School. The SJP is a
graduation requirement for high school seniors.
