The Kansas Independent College Association (KICA) develops and enhances the competitive standing of its 19 member independent, non-profit, regionally accredited, degree-granting colleges and universities and strives to assure opportunity and choice in higher education for all students.  KICA was founded in 1976. In partnership with the member colleges, KICA currently offers academic programs with courses of study in Athletic Training, Secondary Methods and High-Incidence Special Education.  The Special Education program provides the foundation for working with students who have mild to moderate disabilities (high-incidence) at the PreK-12, K-6 or 6-12 levels. Our Secondary Methods program provides a background in teaching literature, mathematics, humanities, and science for grades 6-12. We also offer a program in Athletic Training which provides students with the knowledge to treat and prevent sports related injuries.  
KICA education programs are a hybrid of in-person and online learning, while Athletic Training sessions always meet in person. All of our programs place an emphasis on hands-on learning. Students are prepared to be stewards of their community, helping others from all walks of life. 
Administrative Staff:
Beverly Schottler, Program Director and Special Education Department Head
Russ Graber, Athletic Training Coordinator
Terri Newhouse, Program Assistant

ACCK Teacher Interview Day is scheduled for Thursday, March 7, 2019, at Bethany College, Lindsborg, Kansas.
