The school must raise more than $2 million each year – $2,500 for middle school students and $3,500 for high school students – to continue offering a comprehensive arts program. Although parents are asked to provide an annual parent funding contribution, it is completely voluntary, and CSArts San Gabriel Valley is committed to admitting all youth eligible for enrollment without consideration of their family's ability to make a donation.
Nearly 20% of the school's 700 talented students live below the national poverty level and approximately 40% are in need of some financial assistance to help with the costs of their arts training. In an effort to provide financial support to qualified students from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds, we created the Artist Scholar Sponsorship Program (ASSP). Every dollar donated to ASSP is an investment in the future of a gifted young student with limited resources. Please consider sponsoring one, or more, of these deserving student artists with a tax-deductible donation to the Artist Scholar Sponsorship Program.
