Throughout the fall, CSFP will spend time in communities throughout the city providing resources and support to help families make the best decision about their children’s K-8th grade education. We will host two important events:
CSFP will host a citywide event to celebrate the opening of our random lottery* for School Year 2019-2020 scholarships. Staff and volunteers will hand out information and provide opportunities for families to apply for a partial scholarship at six different recreation centers across the city:
Olney Recreation Center (Flagship): 6001 A Street
Holmesburg Recreation Center: 4500 Rhawn Street
Kendrick Recreation Center: 5822 Ridge Avenue
Kingsessing Recreation Center: 4901 Kingsessing Avenue
Cobbs Creek Recreation Center: 280 Cobbs Creek Parkway
Murphy Recreation Center: 300 West Shunk Street
*All CSFP scholarships are partial and need-based. Applications are free and available here after the 22nd.
CSFP will team up with GreatPhillySchools (GPS) to host a free, open-to-the-public, K-8th grade school fair. At the fair, families can meet with admissions representatives from over 100 diverse public district, public charter, and private schools, learn about admission processes, and find a great fit for their children.
CSFP designed the Citywide Application Launch and the Philly K-8 School Fair to provide Philadelphia families with information and education about the many options for their children’s primary grade education. We believe that #EveryPhillyKid should have access to a great education at a school that best meets their individual needs.
Do you believe that #EveryPhillyKid should succeed at a great school? Word of mouth is the most common way that families learn about CSFP scholarships! Please help spread the word about these two events, and share this article with a family who might be interested in our need-based scholarships or in attending the school fair.
