Chicago International Charter School (CICS) is open to all students, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status or disability status. When we receive more applications for a school than seats available, students are enrolled in our campuses via a fair, random lottery. This ensures all students have an equal opportunity to enroll at the campuses of their parents' or guardians' choosing. All CICS schools are charter public and tuition free.
