SCORE, a non-profit dedicated to helping small businesses get off the ground has named Oceanside-based performing arts school, To the Stage, a 2018 American Small Business Championship winner. To the Stage was one of 102 winners nationwide and one of two businesses in the state to receive the recognition.

To the Stage founder Courtney Pincus-Koehle said she was “thrilled” by the honor. “I’m grateful for all the support from the community, and the wonderful families that have been a part of To the Stage since its inception in 2012,” Pincus-Koehle said. The selections were made through a combination of online polling and evaluation by a panel of judges, she said.

“My lifelong dream has been to provide children and young adults with a safe outlet to build confidence and self esteem, as well as develop their passion for the arts,” she added. “It is truly amazing to be able to successfully have fulfilled this dream in the community I grew up in.”
