OUR MISSION



Sela Public Charter School will offer 

children of all ethnic and socioeconomic

backgrounds in the District of Columbia,

from pre-K to 5th grade, the

opportunity to achieve academic

excellence in a safe, nurturing

environment that focuses on Hebrew

language immersion, promotes the

value of diversity and provides the skills

for taking action in the world.

EDUCATING THE WHOLE CHILD

A whole child approach to education

will develop and prepare students for 



the challenges and opportunities of

today and tomorrow by addressing

students' comprehensive needs

through the shared responsibility of

students, families, schools, and

communities.

STRENGTH IN DIVERSITY

Sela PCS seeks to create a culture of

appreciation for diversity and difference

that will enrich students through their

exposure to cultures and backgrounds

different from their own.

GLOBAL LEARNERS

As the world becomes a

“flatter”place, we aspire to a reality in

which the students of DC will be

equipped with the skills to be full

participants in a world in which it is

crucial to be culturally multi-literate.
