About Us

CICS Jackson (formerly CICS Patriots) is a free, public college preparatory charter school. We currently serve students in Kindergarten through Grade 7.

Next year, we will add Grade 8, and continue to expand annually until the school becomes a full K-12 school.

CICS Jackson is part of the Distinctive Schools network of high-performing charter schools.


This summer, our school moved into a larger, permanent home:

the former Jackson Elementary School at 315 Summit St. (map)

Read more here about the relocation.



CICS Jackson is now accepting applications for new students to enroll in Kindergarten through Grade 7 in August 2013.

  • If you are applying for Kindergarten, your child must be 5 years old by September 1, 2014.
