OLATHE, Kan., Jan. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Kansas Virtual Academy and Insight School of Kansas, public online schools serving students in grades K–6 and 7–12, respectively, have opened enrollment for fall 2016. As programs of Spring Hill School District, the two online schools are available to any student residing in Kansas and are tuition-free.
"This is our 8th year of providing online learning as an option to Kansas families," said Cassie Barton, head of school of Kansas Virtual Academy and Insight School of Kansas. "We get students from all walks of life, from those who need more of an academic challenge than they are getting in their current academic setting to those who need an environment with fewer distractions and more individualized support. Online learning can be a great choice for many students, especially when the parents are interested in becoming more involved in their child's education."
Both schools give students the opportunity to learn in the ways that are right for them, while covering both core subject areas and electives. Lessons are delivered online using award-winning curriculum and tools provided by K¹².
Kansas Virtual Academy provides an active, supportive community and an opportunity for students to socialize through online clubs and events, as well as monthly face-to-face outings.
Insight School of Kansas offers targeted support for students who have struggled academically, expert programs and assistance in helping students fill in skill gaps and move toward graduation, Honors and Advanced Placement courses for students who are looking to be challenged, and a social and emotional learning program.
Insight School of Kansas also supports an Adult Learner program, which gives students who have not earned a true high school diploma the chance to do so, no matter their age. The Adult Learner program is backed by the strong K12 curriculum and high Kansas standards. Adult learners can call ISKA at 913-592-4600 to take advantage of a new in-year enrollment option that allows them to start school as soon as mid-March.
Online and in-person information sessions are being scheduled throughout the state. Families and adult students who are interested in enrolling for a September 2016 start should visit http://www.k12.com/ksva or http://ks.insightschools.net/ for details.
