CICS Ralph Ellison is a college preparatory high school making a difference in the lives of students on the south side of Chicago. We support the development of our young people in a safe, caring and challenging environment. We set and maintain high expectations for our students, parents and faculty and we challenge our entire school community to live by the motto "Be Visible." Over the four-year college preparatory experience, students develop the intellectual skills, cultural competence, belief in self and the engagement in community necessary for success in school, college, the workplace and life with a focus on social justice.
Ralph Ellison operates at its capacity of nearly 600 students enrolled in grades 9-12. CICS Ellison is dedicated to providing high quality, college preparatory instruction with an emphasis on rigor, relevance and the forging of strong relationships.
Our school is distinguished by its commitment to sustaining a robust community of learners, where educators work closely with students to support academic, social and personal development.
