CSCA is an independent, non-profit K-8 school. It is fully funded by tuition and donations. CSCA received 501(c)(3) status in June 2015. Donations to the school are tax deductible. CSCA’s finances are independent of national, state, or local financing or taxpayer contributions.
The founders, Val Sahyoun and Holly Wu, are committed as directors and teachers, and they are also committed as parents of the school. Val began her education career in 1992, and Holly began in 2000. Like most parents, they envision a consistent environment for their children to attend their entire K-8 years. The school’s budget is solid, and the school will grow in increments of 12 students at a time, which is the amount of tuition needed to generate the additional staff and space required for growth. CSCA has opened its doors and is growing at a prime time, a time when the need is great for students to have alternative choices in their education, a time when people are spiritually calling out for something greater.
