CHS Democracy School


Carlinville High School was recognized by the McCormick Foundation as an Illinois Democracy School. 

"Recognized schools join the Democracy Schools Network, a community of faculty and administrators that supports sustained commitment through peer-to-peer learning and collaboration between schools. Member schools also receive financial support from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation to pursue civic learning improvement plans." McCormick Foundation

CHS Supports a Healthy Democracy


We believe that civic learning experiences  

prepare our students to participate in public life.

CHS empowers students to play an active role in our democracy.


We provide quality civic learning experiences that allow our students to develop the skills necessary to be active participants in the democratic process.
