Are you ready for CCSA’s first ever school-wide student showcase?

This event is the culmination of a year-long arts-integration project.

‘Chester Rising’ invites our students to explore this city’s past, present, and future in a personal, meaningful way. They’re preparing a collaborative production that will feature live music, dance performances, and theatre, as well as a gallery of artwork curated by the artists themselves.

We’ve never done anything this ambitious before, and we’re inviting friends and community members to celebrate and honor the work of our students and our city.

All funds raised through the ‘Chester Rising’ student showcase will support CCSA’s exceptional programming – including our intensive focus on literacy, the arts, and STEM – that ensures that our children continue to thrive.

Tickets are $75. Invitations will be sent by mail in early April.

A Recognition of Strong Leadership

Our distinguished event honorees, Don Delson and Jay McEntee, exemplify CCSA’s goal for its graduates – to be creative thinkers with purpose, passion, and character. Don, as chair of the CCSA Board, drove the creation of CCSA’s new campus. Jay, as chair of The Chester Fund Board, through his steady, effective leadership, raised equity for the new campus.

We look forward to publicly recognizing Don and Jay for their extraordinary contributions to CCSA.
