Continuity of Education Program (COVID-19)

As a result of an order by Gov. Wolf, all Pennsylvania schools including Chester Charter Scholars Academy will be physically closed through June for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. All CCSA instruction will proceed online. CCSA is committed to providing the most effective methods and systems available for the continuation of our high-quality education despite the exceptional circumstances of the full school closure in the state of Pennsylvania.
