Our mission—We seek excellence in academics, the arts, and athletics from the foundation of love—is incorporated at our charter school and encompasses the curricular, instructional, and philosophical focus of our site. King-Chávez Academy of Excellence (KCAE) strives to cultivate nurturing relationships while providing an academically rigorous, supportive, and safe environment for its students at our school so that the relationship between the teacher, student, and family can thrive.
KCAE opened its doors to the community in September 2001, serving grades K–7 with an initial enrollment of 75 students. However, by year’s end it exceeded 200 students. In the 2002–03 school year KCAE expanded to serve grades K–8. In 2007, the school moved from the leased facility at the Calvary Church to our current location.
