CSFP is the largest and most diverse provider of K-8th grade scholarships in the state. We provide 4-year, partial, K-8th grade scholarships to low-income Philadelphia children. Our program requires that families contribute at least $500 to their child(ren)’s tuition annually.
Because we are so diverse, tuition at our more than 170 private schools ranges widely. However, there are a number of other programs families may utilize in order to make quality private school affordable. Please contact the schools you are considering to learn about their financial aid and payment plans.
If you are in need of more financial assistance, there are several other scholarship programs for which your family may be eligible. Please note, below is only a partial list. Research private school scholarship programs to identify other potential opportunities.
