Q: What is your favorite subject at school?

Susan (Kelli Rose’s Mother)
Q: What are your hopes for your CSFP child(ren)?
A: To earn a degree, be well educated, and to become an upstanding woman in America.
Q: Why do you think it is important for your child(ren) to attend a tuition-based school in Philadelphia?
A: My niece attended a public school and was relentlessly bullied. She complained of not learning or being challenged while in school. She transitioned to an alternative school this year and is graduating. She demanded that her little cousin, my daughter, attend a tuition-based school. I felt strongly about this argument and consequently applied for the Children’s Scholarship Fund.
Q: How does your CSFP scholarship affect your family?
A: I am able to feel safe and rest assured that my child is in a protected and healthy learning environment.
