César Chávez Academy - Academia César Chávez is a K-12 public charter school in Detroit, Michigan.[1] It is operated by The Leona Group, an operator of charter schools in Arizona, Florida, Michigan, and Ohio.

Enrollment increase and grade school renovations[edit]

Not long after César Chávez opened, MPNE was renamed "The Leona Group" in honor of Bill Coates' mother, Leona Coates. This name change reflected MPNE's change in focus from a quasi-public think tank/advocacy group to a privately owned, for-profit corporation.

Upper Elementary[edit]

At some point a separate Upper Elementary complex was added on Martin just south of Michigan Avenue. It uses the former school and parish hall of Our Lady Queen of Angels Church also known as Our Lady of Guadalupe.
