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 1,000 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.
