CREATING A COMMUNITY OF SUPPORT

When students drop out of school, the door slams on their dreams. And ours.

High school dropouts are:

8x more likely to go to prison
More likely to need welfare
50% less likely to vote
Not eligible for 90% of new jobs
Earn less than half as much as college grads

The CIS Model is among the best in the nation at improving graduation success rates.
