The Mathematics, Civics and Sciences Charter School of Philadelphia, Inc. (MCSCS) is one of the largest charter schools in the state of Pennsylvania with a population of nearly one thousand students in grades first through twelfth.  Our mission is to provide a quality education, preparation for students to enter college and the necessary skills for today’s work force. In the past fourteen years of graduating students, we have a 0% drop out rate, 100% of our seniors graduate, 97-98% attends college, and 2-3% attend trade schools. 

The school is committed to advancing students in math and the sciences.  However, a major component is our civics curriculum, which produces good citizens through the promotion of caring, character and community service.

We need our community to  help us build a new Gymnasium for our growing school and athletic program in particular. Our Girls and Boys Basketball teams have been outstanding. We need a consistent location where they can train, develop and maximize their full potential.

A new gym will help us:

:: Have a secure and safe location for our student-athletes to hone their skills
:: Reduce gym rental costs for other facilities
:: Develop addition in-school athletic programs
:: and more...


The funds for our Basketball team will go towards:

:: Transportation
:: Team Apparel and Uniforms
:: Team Meals
:: Training Equipment
:: and more...

We need your help!

Consider making a donation today. No donation is too small. Our student-athletes work very hard to represent their community and our school. Go MCSCS!

As a charter school teacher, I understand how difficult it is to work with your local school district. Their fear of your success completely blinds them to the possibility of reproducing your school environment/curriculum in order to spread the success city and state wide. Don't let anyone cloud your vision. Your students are worth the fight!
