In November of 2000, Cesar Chavez Academy Public Charter School was founded by Lawrence and Annette Hernandez, Gloria Guerrero, Eddie Montour, and Camille Calderon. The Academy was started with the hope and belief that every child has the capacity to attain high levels of academic achievement while being excited about education and the prospects for their future.
The promise of Cesar Chavez Academy has been fulfilled through the extraordinary commitment of parents, staff, students, and the community. The hard work and exemplary effort put forth by the CCA community is exemplified by the school’s receipt of the James Irwin Award, the high number of students scoring advanced and proficient on the annual CSAP exams and the reciept of the El Pomar Foundation award for excellence in education for 2006 (View El Pomar Excellence Award Winners) . With the promise of bright futures and the support of the CCA community; the students of the Academy will continue to grow and become the scholars, leaders, and world citizens of tomorrow.
