The RIGOROUS AND CHALLENGING CURRICULUM supports the development of young people in a safe environment.
Your child will thrive in an identity-affirming culture where BE VISIBLE is our motto. We set and maintain high expectations for our students, parents and faculty.
Over the four-year college and career prep high school 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.
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.
