CCSA is a K-12 Non-Profit Public Charter school that serves students in the Chester Upland School District and surrounding areas by delivering a high quality arts-integrated curriculum.


Chester Charter Scholars Academy (CCSA) empowers students to realize their best selves, and employ their intellectual and creative power to succeed personally and to enrich their community.


CCSA's vision is that 100% of its students will graduate prepared for college, conservatory, technical school, the military or gainful employment.  This means that students will demonstrate four essential qualities: Scholarship, Strong Character, Craftsmanship and Purpose.
