Our vision is that every student must graduate.
CIS of Chicago alumna, Zari, met Student Supports Manager, Ms. Simone Woods, at the start of her senior year in high school. Zari admits that she didn’t have much direction at that time, but with Ms. Woods’ support, she received guidance, stability, and focus — and graduated from high school on time.
