Our Programs

Traditional Program

CIS offers during the day programs which partner with school districts, educators, parents, and community partners to identify barriers to success and address the needs of students. Once the needs are identified, CIS customizes support for students and families providing individual case management services while engaging the community as part of this process. CIS reviews individual academics, behavior, attendance, and tracks education outcomes for all students served. CIS exists to help young people successfully learn, stay in school, graduate, and prepare for life.

Crisis Intervention

Crisis Intervention provides intervention services to district students and families to ensure their voices are heard and receive proper care.

ACE Program

The Communities In Schools ACE Program (outside of school hours) is a FREE program that helps to improve student attendance, behavior, and academics, while providing safe supplemental learning space for students and families. Our programs are structured to provide students with ample opportunity to engage in math, reading and science enrichment, as well as a wide array of Fine Arts education, physical recreation, character-building, service-learning, tutoring and other personal enrichment activities not always available during the regular school day.  

Premier Academy

Premier Academy, our fee-based after-school program,  offers a safe, organized, caring and supportive environment that focuses on the whole child. We encourage each child to meet academic challenges with openness, enthusiasm, and a willingness to solve problems while fostering integrity, leadership and global citizenship.
