Communities in Schools of Orange County has a mission to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

CIS Orange, together with the involvement of its donors, community partners, and schools, provides a community of support to 450 students at eight middle schools and one alternative high school in the districts for Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools and Orange County Schools. We help the students stay on track through afterschool and summer programs and through in-school services.
