Our Story

Our story is an exciting adventure filled with heart-warming successes, unforgettable memories, and compelling testimonials that chronicle our community’s ability to identify problems and provide solutions… together.

The concept of Communities in Schools is to provide a network of support for kids who have the potential to be successful. The guiding principles for individual and corporate involvement are real, because there are kids who need the entire community’s support to be successful.

At Communities in Schools-Wake County, we have the methodology and the ability to generate resources, tutors, and mentors to help kids be successful.

There’s no doubt in my mind that there are any number of kids out there who were given no chance of completing high school, who did indeed graduate. Considering our accomplishments, we are a well-kept secret.

I want students to feel as though they don’t have barriers to achieving their educational goals.    
~ Alex Holmes, CIS Wake Co-Founder
Communities in Schools exposes kids to college campuses and experiences they wouldn’t have opportunities to be introduced to otherwise. This is a cooperative agreement between the parents, students, and CIS.
