Mission Statement

Academia Cesar Chavez is a tuition-free charter school that is open to all students. The school is "dedicated to providing a quality education that prepares critically thinking, socially competent, values driven, and culturally aware learners by utilizing Latino cultural values in an environment of 'familia' and community."

We have a bilingual curriculum with both English and Spanish speaking staff in our classrooms. About 96% of our student population is hispanic/latino, but enrollment is open to students from any background. We celebrate holidays from many latino cultures, such as Dia de los Muertos and Cinco de Mayo.

We invite you to join our familia!
