CIS of Charleston is celebrating
28 years of serving Lowcountry students!

During the 2015-16 year, we served nearly 12,000 young people in 25 schools. Of those students, 952 received case-managed services.
We are proud to say that of those case-managed students:

  • 98% were promoted to the next grade level

  • 75% maintained adequate or improved attendance

  • 82% maintained a C or higher in Math or increased from a failing to a passing grade

  • 86% maintained a C or higher in ELA or increased from a failing grade to a passing grade
  • 93% improved or maintained positivie school behavior

  • 98% of seniors graduate (73% went to college, 6% joined the military, 21% entered the workforce)

Thanks to the generosity of volunteers and donors, CIS has helped thousands of children excel in schools throughout the Charleston region. Read some of our SUCCESS STORIES.

Music Tells the Story

Music Tells the Story is an expanding project to provide music education and enrichment for elementary school students.  Composer/songwriter/performer Ayala Asherov-Kalus works with students at Burns Elementary School to turn their poems and stories into real compositions played by the Charleston Symphony Orchestra.
