La Causa Charter School was established as an MPS non-instrumentality charter school in 2003. La Causa is a bilingual/ESL school (English and Spanish) where parents, staff, and community collaborate to develop and maintain a positive learning environment. The mission is to provide innovative, foundational, and culturally rich academic programs focused on fine arts, science and technology, bilingual education, and English as a second language while engaging the entire family in their children’s educational experience. Students have access to a variety of programs such as video production, robotics, Project Lead the Way, art, music, physical education, and computer science. La Causa's goal is to develop students to become bilingual, biliterate, and bicultural. La Causa has an additional campus located at 809 W. Greenfield Avenue.
