We believe that every child deserves a high-quality education, regardless of race, academic achievement to date, or their family’s economic status. With your support, CICS has worked to close the achievement gap, so that our scholars are performing at the same level— or better— than the national average. Although we are incredibly proud of closing the achievement gap, it still means that 1 in 3 of our scholars is prepared for college, and together, we know that we can do more.
Our new vision requires and expects that every single CICS graduate can get into and succeed in college. To provide scholars with the resources they need to achieve their best and be ready for college, we are committed to raising a dollar a day in honor of each CICS scholar.

At CICS, we know that the success of our nearly 9,000 scholars depends on the work of our tireless advocates, teachers, staff, and families supported by our donors, partners, and volunteers. These contributions enrich the lives of our students every day, and for that we are grateful. Because of your work, our scholars are on the path to greatness.
