Evening Academy

Evening Academy

Evening Academy is a high school program designed for students looking for a flexible pathway toward graduation.  Students will earn credits toward a traditional high school diploma.  Students can enroll as a full time Evening Academy student, part-time student, or dual-enrolled student.  Students who are behind can catch up in a safe, supportive environment while being dual-enrolled at their home high school or enrolled as a full time Evening Academy student. Students can also create room in their schedule for additional courses and electives by taking credits through Evening Academy.  We have an option for every student!


Students will use an online software program and blended instruction to obtain credits toward a high school diploma. Classes will meet Monday through Thursday afternoons and evenings for quarterly 9-week sessions. Schedules will be developed with the instructor to best meet students’ goals.

KCPS will provide transportation, meals and required technology for Evening Academy students in addition to wraparound support services.
