Kauffman SchoolHalloween at Kauffman School

Since 2004, the Honors Program has proudly sponsored a partnership with the Ewing Marion Kauffman School. The Kauffman School is a free public charter school for students in fifth through twelfth grade, and its mission is to support and empower students to become eventual college graduates. Each year, the Honors Program allocates several Work-Study positions for eligible students to work at the Kauffman School in administrative and classroom roles. In addition, honors students are proud to claim a strong track record of volunteerism at the Kauffman School.

The Academy for Integrated Arts (or AFIA) is a free Kansas City charter school dedicated to using the arts to prepare students for a college preparatory high school. AFIA serves students from pre-K to sixth grade. The Honors Program sponsors several Work-Study positions at AFIA each year, and also supports volunteer opportunities within the school.
