Excellence for Every Child, Every Day

Application

Chicago International Charter School (CICS) is open to all students, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status or disability status. When we receive more applications for a school than seats available, students are enrolled in our campuses via a fair, random lottery.  This ensures all students have an equal opportunity to enroll at the campuses of their parents' or guardians' choosing. All CICS schools are charter public and tuition free.

For more information, please see our FAQs section or call (312) 651-5000.
