Tuition

Tuition is FREE! Rigor is HIGH and worth it! To achieve our goal! SR1 CSPA are accepting student from ALL backgrounds that want to accept the HIGH Rigor of SR1 CPSA. 

What is Rigor?

Rigor is more than just “how difficult a class is” however, and even more than “how hard a student has to work to earn a good grade.” In essence, a rigorous class prepares the student by teaching them (and having them exercise) skills useful in school, the business world, and in life.

Why is it important?

Colleges will not be impressed with the bare minimum. The average will not wow them. This is where academic rigor comes in. They want to see you pushing yourself. They want to see you stepping out of your comfort zone and working hard to accomplish good grades. More importantly life problems will not accept the bare minimum. Future leaders need to solve problems that push the limits of thinking combine with a level of social skills and ethical responsibilities.
