Program Description

CIS Charleston was established in 1989, following a study by Johns Hopkins University in Maryland that advised the Charleston County School District to implement dropout prevention programs. In a 1990 partnership with the Charleston County School District CIS established the Septima P. Clark Corporate Academy, Charleston Countys first alternative high school. The Clark Academy offers a low student/teacher ratio and a comprehensive support staff for students who have previously not excelled in the traditional school setting. Americas Promise has recognized the academy as one of Americas Schools of Promise.
