"Parents need choice when they are faced with making educational decisions for their children. When what they have counted on no longer works or they want something better, their choices are quite limited. For many years I did not know about CICS. My presumption was that only rich Christian families sent their kids here, and I am far from rich and only a typical Christian who makes it to church most Sundays but not all. I am so glad I took a chance and looked into CICS. For the quality of education my children receive, I am happy to pay the extra above my tax dollars. This school has made a world of difference to my boys' future and we will forever be thankful for CICS."
Kris Gilman, parent of two CICS students
