The Little Village Academy, formally known as Burns/Cardenas School, began its inaugural year in September 1996. The school is located in an area known as Little Village. The area is a major port of entry for Hispanic immigrants. The students that attend the Little Village Academy come from 5 different schools. All of these schools were overcrowded and the Burns/Cardenas school was built to relieve this problem. The community of Little Village has worked very diligently for more schools and because of this 4 schools were open in fall 1996.
The school has 98% Hispanic student population and 50% to 60% of the students are Limited English Proficient (LEP). The school includes grades PK-8th. Finally, the opening of this school brought together for the first time, parents, students and teachers. Our major emphasis in developing a positive and nurturing climate so that Little Village Academy can become and active and contributing partner of the Little Village community.
