About Camino Nuevo Charter Academy

Camino Nuevo Charter Academy was founded in August 2000 by Pueblo Nuevo Development, a nonprofit community development corporation in the MacArthur Park neighborhood west of downtown Los Angeles. The MacArthur Park neighborhood is one of the poorest and most densely populated neighborhoods in Los Angeles. Most of the residents are immigrants from Mexico and Central America. In 1992, Philip Lance, an Episcopal Minister, began working with residents of the community to find ways to address the severe economic and social problems in the area. Over the past 10 years, several organizations and businesses grew out of this effort, including a thrift store, a worker-owned janitorial company, a non-profit community development corporation, a charter school, free clinic and a pre-school. Together, these organizations are providing children with outstanding and enriched educational opportunities as well as revitalizing this urban neighborhood and making it a safe and healthy place to live.
