"We have so much talent and potential. Some of us might become architects, or lawyers (that’s what I want to be), or doctors, or social workers, or teachers, and so much more. We are here to build the future" — Cearra Taylor (Class of 2023)
As you can imagine, this has been a unique and challenging year for our scholars, our families, our staff, and our entire country. Despite these challenges, we are excited about the great things happening at Chavez and the opportunities that lie before us. Thank you for your generosity as we work towards our mission of preparing scholars to succeed in competitive colleges and empowering them to use public policy to create a more just, free, and equal world.

“I feel as though they see a bright future in us, so they want us to start early. They will make the path for us and they just want us to follow it.”
-- Kierra James, Cesar Chavez PCS Parkside High School, 12th grade
|When asked about her college counseling experience, Kierra exclaimed, “I love Ms. Savage! She will make sure that you are on top of things… She wants everybody to be able to go to college and not be in debt when they graduate.”||
“With the type of teachers we have here, teachers are willing to take you under their wings even after you graduate.’”
-- Alexys Hewlett, recent grad of Cesar Chavez PCS and sophomore in college
