In 2020, the Pennsylvania Coalition of Public Charter Schools (PCPCS) was awarded an Expanding Opportunities Through Quality Charter School Programs Grant (commonly referred to as a CSP Grant) from the US Department of Education that would support the development, expansion and replication of high-quality public schools in Pennsylvania. In May of 2023, Provident Charter School West was awarded $1.5 Million to replicate the programming of Provident Charter School’s Inaugural School in Pittsburgh, PA. Charter schools whose model and track record demonstrate a strong likelihood that they will produce meaningful and sustainable student learning gains are chosen for this replication grant. We are truly thankful for this opportunity and look forward to the success of PCS West.
