California School of the Arts – San Gabriel Valley (CSArts-SGV) is a tuition-free, donation-dependent public charter school. No student is offered or denied enrollment based upon financial capacity. Through a public-private partnership, the State of California provides funding for the academic instructional program offered at CSArts-SGV. In addition, the school must raise approximately $2.75 million to fund the arts conservatory programs each year. CSArts-SGV relies solely on generous contributions from families, members of the community, and corporate partners to help reach this goal.
All families are required to complete the Conservatory Funding Agreement (CFA) form once per school year as a part of the annual enrollment process.
The collective CFA pledges from all of our families determine the annual budget for each conservatory. Any pledge or donations you make will be allocated directly to your child’s individual conservatory budget. All cash contributions to the school are fully tax deductible.
We recognize that each family has a unique financial situation; however, our goal is 100% participation at whatever level is possible from each family. You also have the option to sell or purchase program advertising space in the school’s 50+ performance programs.
