About the CCSA Foundation

The CCSA Foundation's sole purpose is to support the mission of Chester Charter Scholars Academy (CCSA), an arts integrated, K-12 non-profit public charter school offering an exceptional educational option in Chester, PA. On an annual basis, the generosity of donors allows the Foundation to contribute $600,000 to CCSA that is invested directly in the operations and programs of the school. 

CCSA Foundation is led by a Board of Directors, individuals who are passionate about equitable education and opportunities for all children to thrive and succeed.  The professional staff of the Foundation carries out the daily operations.

Spring 2021

Every child can know their fullest potential.

Over the past seven years CCSA has made great progress from our initial K-6 school that served just over 250 students.  We now educate 695 children across thirteen grade levels, making us the only K–12 school in Chester.  The CCSA Foundation and the support of its donors have played an important role in making that possible.

Your support creates a unique experience for children in Chester.

Join us in continuing to create opportunities for CCSA students so that they have every opportunity to achieve their fullest potential.
