CCS is a hidden gem in Chesco (located in Exton, PA) and arguably one of the highest performing Charter Schools in PA. For the past two years, CCS has received very high academic performance SPP scores (86.2 in 2012-2013 and 75 in 2013-2014), equal to and exceeding many of the suburban schools in the area. The school has a very balanced level of diversity among its student population, including special education program. College preparation includes AP course selections in over 10 subjects. They also have a number of STEM specific programs, including the completion of a state of art STEM facility that is part of the new CCS gym. In 2013-2014, CCS was reported to have a 63% pass rate for its AP exams, and in 2013, was ranked as the 36th highest SAT score (1615) in Pennsylvania. CCS has placed grades into colleges such as UPenn, Bryn Mawr, BYU, Lehigh University, Lafayette College, Penn State, and Villanova. The organization of CCS is phenomenal, including a CEO, whom is a Stanford Graduate, and a Board of Trustees, who are very accomplished leaders, professionals, and CCS parents.
