Support CICS

We believe in a future where all children have access to a high-quality public school, and all families have a choice in determining the most impactful learning experience for their child. Join us to advance this important work and vision.


Help CICS expand our impact.

For nearly 30 years, CICS has supported a portfolio of partner organizations that employ their unique academic model to run tuition-free public charter schools that best serve the needs of their communities. 

Today, CICS partners with three organizations that collectively operate 13 public charter schools across Chicago, enrolling more than 7,000 students from Kindergarten through the 12th grade.

The generous support of our CICS community allows us to thoughtfully and strategically invest in our schools, educational leaders, students and their communities. Your investment enables CICS to support experienced, innovative and dynamic educators who are looking to change the way their schools partner with the community, engage with families and educate young people.

Our voices are heard when we find opportunities to publically promote charter schools. To join the conversation and stay informed on legislative issues that affect charter schools, we encourage you to join our email list, "Follow" CICS on Twitter and "Like" us on Facebook.

CICS is energized by the fact that so many of our parents have joined charter families from across the city who want their children to continue to have the option of a high-quality, college preparatory charter public school education. We have all seen the positive impact charter schools have made in our children’s education and we believe that charter school families deserve equality in funding and a voice in the future of our children’s education.
