Children’s Community School (CCS) provides an educational alternative for low-income families living in the Waterbury area. Fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and the National Association for the Education of Young Children, it has been providing a unique, high-quality, private education for 44 years. The educational model and the support of hundreds of volunteers results in a 92% on-time high school graduation rate of our children.
With a budget of $1.2 million and tuition set at $350 a year for most families, CCS depends on the generosity of others to cover 96% of its expenses. Your participation is appreciated.
Children’s Community School educates the mind, body, and spirit of Waterbury’s
inner-city children and encourages strong parental involvement to insure the success of each child.
