Why Sponsorships are Important

In all of the basic measures of school success – attendance, behavior and working at grade level – CCS excels.  That success is attributed to small class size, giving students lots of individual attention, and parent engagement.  

Everyone signs a contract at the beginning of the year that they will do their part – teachers will offer engaging lessons, students will do their best, and parents will encourage and help monitor their child’s work and reading at home – and pay the $400 to $500 tuition for the full year.

You can be a part of this success story by helping to fund important elements of the CCS experience that cannot possibly be covered with tuition.  It’s also important to know that CCS receives little state or federal funding. 

Most of CCS expenses are paid with income from individual donations, corporate and business sponsors, community partnerships, private grants and in-kind donations. Community support provides these children the outstanding education they would otherwise be unable to access and is impossible to provide through the public school system because of the class sizes.
