Online schooling for high school is a natural fit for today’s teens. High school students have grown up with the Internet, and they use technology to connect with each other and their interests every day. Who better to take advantage of the benefits and possibilities of a free virtual high school program?
At Kansas Connections Academy (KCA), the online high school curriculum, which is accompanied by some of the best educational resources, is fine-tuned to launch each student into a successful future. While math, science, English, and social studies form the core of the curriculum, KCA also offers a wide variety of online high school courses that provide a solid foundation for whatever path graduates choose: attending college or starting a career.
Students in the blended program will be provided with a space and time during the school day to work on their online courses with a teacher available to monitor and support them. They will also be able to socialize with their peers, attend QIA classes in person and stay in a more Islamic environment. Students will also be given the option of joining the physical education class for credit.

All AIS high school students are required to take a minimum of one credit of either Qur’an or Islamic Studies each year they are enrolled. These count as elective credits with the state. Students are able to focus on Qur’an to continue to develop mastery of Tajweed rules and increase their reading fluency and memorization. All of our secondary high school Qur’an teachers are Hafidh. They focus on Islamic studies taking more in-depth courses in Aqueedah, Fiqh, Hadith, Tafseer, and or Seerah, based on student interest.
Annoor has established a dual-credit system with Butler County Community College to allow our juniors and seniors the opportunity to take college courses while still in high school and therefore earn both college and high school credit simultaneously. This could allow our seniors to potentially have 30 college credits by the time they graduate. Our administration and staff work with students to develop an individualized plan of studies for students based on career and college interests. This allows students to take the appropriate electives towards their planned career path.
