Career Information Center (CIC)

East Chapel Hill High School

The East Chapel Hill High School Career Information (CIC) is a resource for students, parents and teachers, supported by the Career and Technical Education Department and the East Chapel Hill High School PTSA. The CIC is dedicated to helping students gain knowledge about themselves and provides opportunities to assist them in reaching personal, academic and career goals.


The CIC will be closed until may 15 (or as long as the district is closed), following the CHCCS district's closings. Updates will continue to be made on the CIC website as information is received (summer programs, local events, etc.)
