Q: What are your hopes for your CSFP child(ren)?
A: That she receives strong academic skills, and also has the opportunity to explore art, music and other extracurricular classes.

Q: Why do you think it is important for your child(ren) to attend a tuition-based school in Philadelphia?
A: I have friends who send their children to public school and regret that they don’t have any other option. I hear everything from being behind in reading to fights in the classrooms. The investment in a better school is worth every penny.

Q: How does your CSFP scholarship affect your family?
A: The scholarship makes a big difference in our budget, and lessens the burdens of life-with-bills.

Q: What would you tell others about CSFP?
A: That it’s a great resource that makes the options of attending a tuition school possible for regular families.
