Who we are

Sojourner Truth Academy is a Pre-K-8 public charter elementary school in North Minneapolis with proven academic and fiscal records. Established by parents and community members in 1999, we continue to offer our students a data driven, balanced curriculum with a highly qualified staff that is supported through our Teacher Leadership Teams and School Improvement System.
Monthly parent events, an on-site, full-time social worker; mental health program; dental clinic, ESL program, and special education programs give us the opportunity to build real relationships and supply students and families with the support they need, when they need it. All-day Pre-K and free all-day kindergarten helps prepare students more thoroughly fo the expectations of the upper grades.
