CIS Academy helped me with graduating and being ready for college, and the teachers were helpful and responsive. We had lots of guest speakers and field trip opportunities. The careers class taught me how to make a professional resume and gave me knowledge on how to act in professional settings.

I was able to graduate with a high gpa thanks to the great teachers and faculty. I was able to go at my own pace which the school was a great preparation for college.
The academics and scheduling were great for me. We would do a lot of indivisual projects and for core classes we would work on our own. Some students were placed into seminars if they needed more help with a specific subject. We could take on as much work to be challenged or just enough work for the student to handle. Some students liked to take the college classes they had to offer for college credits. We also had art teachers come in on thursdays for a semester at a time, which you had an option to sign up for their class.
