Roberto Clemente Community Academy (RCCA) is located in Chicago’s Humboldt Parkcommunity, on the West Side of the city.  Historically a Puerto Rican community, Humboldt Park is home to the Puerto Rican Cultural Center (PRCC), Institute of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture (IPRAC), as well as many community agencies and organizations that center around the Puerto Rican experience.  Roberto Clemente Community Academy has developed working partnerships with many of these organizations, with the potential for further expansion. 

The residents of this community have a strong sense of civic duty as evidenced by the many community organizations and human service agencies in the area, and are deeply concerned about the quality of education that students receive.  Today, the school population of about 750 students is diverse, including large groups of students of Puerto Rican, Mexican, and African-American descent, as well as students from East European and other Latin American heritages.
