As one of Chicago’s most established charter networks, CICS has been impacting lives and communities for more than two decades. With 14 campuses in all corners of our city, CICS’ vibrant network of diverse schools enables students to thrive every day, puts them on a path to success in life and empowers entrepreneurial educators to pursue excellence through innovation.
CICS has reimagined the school experience for students and, in doing so, has oriented everything we do around the student perspective, including how we define excellence for our organization. This has led us to develop our graduate aims.
Graduate Aims are the aspirational mindsets and skills that CICS students should develop to be prepared for what the future will require of them. CICS’ commitment and pursuit of our Graduate Aims will ensure our students will be truly ready to thrive in the 21st century and we will deliver on our promises to students and families.
