Application

Chicago International Charter School (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.
