Our Mission: to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
Communities In Schools of San Antonio was established in 1985 by a group of concerned community leaders to address our city's high dropout rate. The founders’ vision was to provide a positive environment for at-risk students, insuring their access to educational opportunities, social services and support services.
