Changing the lives of Charlotte area youth and adults by providing community-based programs of academic & fine arts excellence!
To be the community services organization of choice for Charlotte area residents by:

Charlotte CSA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization offering community-based summer, afterschool and tutoring services to nearly 200 at-risk students each year, as well as feeding 800 seniors per week in our Grab & Go Lunch Program. We operate on the core belief that all students and residents--particularly those in need--deserve the very best.
We also firmly believe in results! Our afterschool and summer programs are intensive, academic-based offerings. More than 80% of our afterschool students have passed state tests and have been promoted to the next grade.
Our main programs include:
- Clara H. Jones Summer Institute provides fine arts and academic instruction to rising 1st-9th grade students, as well as STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) studies.
- FBC-W Music & Tutoring Afterschool Program is a 21st Century Afterschool Community Learning Center providing academic assistance and fine arts lessons to K-8th students.
- SMART Tutoring Program is an afterschool program that provides intensive tutoring to students in grades 3rd-8th who have failed their End-Of-Grade tests and/or classes.
