The Columbia High School Music Parents’ Association, Inc., better known as CHSMPA, was officially incorporated in 2006, and received nonprofit status as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2007. The Columbia High School Music Parents’ Association (CHSMPA) has been in existence since 1994. Prior to 1994 Columbia High School had a Band Parents’ Association. With the creation of CHSMPA, the Band Parents’ Association was expanded to include all areas of the music department. With school budget crises throughout the state of New Jersey, and a general reduction in funding for the arts, the role of CHSMPA has become increasingly important to the CHS music department.
