What CIC is All About

CIC emphasizes an Honors college prep curriculum with a global approach infused into each course. 

 

Since 1982, CIC has prepared students for university admission and successful global careers through a unique variety of AP, Honors and Accelerated courses, including Japanese and Chinese.

These languages have been identified by the U.S. State Department as critical (along with Russian, Korean and Arabic) to meeting the nation's needs in the 21st Century. 

 

Since Fall 2015, a 4 -year Civic Leadership Pathway (formerly Entrepreneurial Skills Pathway) has begun to be integrated into CIC.

How CIC is Different

CIC has a dedicated faculty (teachers are assigned to teach sections that include only CIC students) of 20 teachers, 1 counselor, an asst. principal and a facilitator/program director.  Offering 7 classes per semester, students are able to select a general elective in addition to 5-6 core classes.

 

CIC has a 100% college attendance rate, 82% retention rate over 4-years and a near 100% graduation rate, having fallen short of 100% in 2016 by one.

 

CIC strives to offer choices and options, knowing students do NOT all share the same strengths.  As such, CIC students have the opportunity to take a range of courses Accelerated, Honors and AP to tailor the 4-year curriculum to their strengths.

 

In Grade 9, CIC offers AP Seminar and World Geography/International Relations, as well as Physics and Intro to Lab Physical Science Accelerated.

 

In Grade 10, CIC offers AP World History and Modern World History Accelerated, as well as Algebra2-Trig Accel. and Algebra 2.

 

In Grade 11, CIC offers Honors Chemistry and Chemistry 1-2, as well as AP US History and Honors US History. CIC also offers Honors Japanese 5-6 and Japanese 5-6.

 

In Grade 12, CIC offers Japanese 7-8 and Chinese 7-8, in addition to AP Japanese and AP Chinese.

 

Students sometimes do have to make choices as the classes are predicated on class enrollment and district rules for sustaining sections.

 

Students in CIC have the unique opportunity in LBUSD to study Chinese and Japanese.

 

CIC has had the District's most ethnically balanced program for the past decade with a near 20% breakdown of each major ethnic group represented, but with the new selection process the balance has shifted somewhat.  Gender balance has also slipped somewhat in recent years, but still holds at 58% Female, 42% Male

 

All this may begin to change with the CHOICE process now overseeing much of the selection process since 2013-14.  Impact on selections is not known.  (See CHOICE Gr8 page for more details)
