    Welcome to Cesar Chavez Language Academy

    Home of the Quetzales


    Cesar Chavez Language Academy is a Two Way Immersion Program serving English Only and English Learner students in Santa Rosa. We are a Dependent Charter School in the Santa Rosa City Schools School District. Our school opened in 2013, with a Kinder Academy and Kindergarten classes. Each year, we have added a grade as those "founding" students move up.  For the 2018-19 school year, we will be offering a TK-5th grade program.  

    For the 2018/19 school year, we will offer the following classes: 

    1- TK

    3 - Kindergarten

    3 - First Grades

    3 - Second Grades

    2 - Third Grades

    2 - 4th Grades

    2 - 5th Grades

    We are projected to have 380 students. In addition to instruction of the Common Core State Standards in English and Spanish, our students also have Art, Science, and PE classes.
