CCOF formed a collaborative partnership with SOL-LA Music Academy in 2010 to deliver quality music instruction to students at Saint Anne School in Santa Monica, the only nonpublic Title I school in Santa Monica. CCOF is providing funding for the program and SOL-LA is assisting with on-site personnel management. CCOF views the SOL-LA collaboration as an opportunity to partner with a high quality nonprofit organization to support Saint Anne School. SOL-LA’s mission is to provide high quality music education to students from all backgrounds and economic circumstances, in an engaging and encouraging environment fostering achievement and community. The program, which includes violin, viola and cello instruction both in school and as an optional after school program, has had a huge impact on the entire culture of Saint Anne School where Title I students and parents for the first time see themselves engaging meaningfully with the arts.
