Communities In Schools of Appalachian Highlands

Skills Development, Career Awareness, Individualized Goal Setting

At Communities In Schools of Appalachian Highlands, we see potential in every student and we are committed to helping them see it too.  Our model of integrated student supports is not about doing the work for students. It’s about making sure all students have access to the community resources and tools they need to unlock their potential and thrive.  Keeping students in school requires engaging them in exploring all workforce opportunities, exposing them to the benefits afforded by a diploma, and ensuring their social/emotional skill sets are ready to transfer to the workplace.
