Who is this intended for?

The CVCS high school program serves students in grades 9–12 who reside within Chicago city limits.

What are the costs?

Because we are part of the Chicago public school system, the CVCS high school program is tuition-free. Enrolled families receive the K12 curriculum, plus a loaner computer and printer at no cost. In addition, a stipend is provided to offset the cost of high-speed Internet access.
