Supplementary Resources

CICS works with a number of organizations to enhance the education and overall school experience for our scholars.  We currently have a wide array of programs in our schools, with collaborative organizations focused on college readiness, mentorship, academic supports and enrichment, athletics, and more.

Thank you to the individuals and organizations who provide additional support and services to our nearly 9,000 CICS scholars, as well as school staff, families, and communities. With these supplementary resources, CICS is working to support Every Child, Every Day.

If you are an organization or individual interested in working with one or many of our 16 campuses, please contact us at 312-651-5000.
