Communities In Schools of Wake County



The mission of Communities In Schools of Wake County (CIS Wake) is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.  We exist to help schools remove barriers that put students at risk of wasting their potential.

CIS Wake provides individualized case management that tracks and increase student performance in attendance, behavior, and course work. 

CIS Wake ensures that every one of our students receives:

1.  A one-on-one relationship with a caring adult (academic coaches, mentors, volunteers and tutors)

2.  A safe place to learning and grow (in-school and after-school tutorial programs)

3.  A healthy start and a healthy future (proper nutrition and positive reinforcement)

4. A chance to give back to peers and the community (community service opportunities)

5.  A marketable skill to use upon graduation (professional and leadership development)
