Cooperative Innovative High Schools (CIHS) target students who are at risk of dropping out of high school, first-generation college students, and/or students who would benefit from accelerated learning opportunities.

Currently, North Carolina has 116 Cooperative Innovative High Schools, including 80 funded partnerships.

Students interested in attending one of these schools should contact their school district central office or the principal at the school for information about the selection and enrollment process.

LEAs interested in creating a Cooperative Innovative High School must apply in partnership with an Institution of Higher Education. Click CIHS Applicants tab to the left for more information.
