CSTA Membership

CSTA Basic

CSTA offers a Basic tier that allows any CS teacher, regardless of funding ability, to connect with their local and national community. As a Basic member, you can join your local chapter, receive key updates from CSTA national, and connect with fellow CS teachers.


Receive all Basic benefits and unlock access to valuable resources, discounts, and professional development for your teaching practice. CSTA+ strengthens local CS communities, as 50% of dues directly support CSTA chapter programs, including 20% that goes directly to your local chapter.
