Your child matters here

CICS Prairie partners with families to personalize learning for every student. Our joyful, caring community makes CICS Prairie an amazing place to learn and grow!

CICS Prairie students are engaged and curious learners.

They excel academically and build deeper self awareness in our joyful culture of safety and support.

CICS Prairie focuses on the whole child.

Our innovative approach focuses on strong relationship-building, student well-being and joy, and a challenging curriculum to ensure student success. We personalize learning to meet the unique needs of each student, and all students receive an iPad or Chromebook to elevate their learning.

CICS Prairie is a community hub for students and families.

Our team works collaboratively to support student wellness and growth, and the combined efforts of our students, staff, and families help build a strong culture of love and care.

You belong here!

CICS Prairie welcomes, accepts, and honors the uniqueness of all community members. We support and celebrate the identity, growth, and success of every student!

CICS is open to all students, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, or disability status. Students are assigned to our campuses via a fair, random lottery, which ensures all students have an equal opportunity to enroll at the campuses of their parents' or guardians' choosing.

No tuition is required. Kindergartners must be 5 years old by September 1st.
