Accelerated Schools of Overland Park works with students and their families to provide a unique learning environment that maximizes individual success.
Welcome to Accelerated Schools of Overland Park! We are a private, non-profit school, accredited by the State of Kansas and by AdvancED. In our full-day program, we provide individualized instruction for students in grades 4-12.
In addition to the "typical student," Accelerated Schools also serves students with various needs, including:
Gifted & Talented Opportunities
Executive Function Skills & Study Skills
Emotional, Social, or Mental Health
ASOP recently received a $5000 grant from the American Century Investments Foundation to help hire an in-school mental health professional and develop a comprehensive program focusing on the mental health and social-emotional well-being of our school community.
ASOP recently received a $12,000 grant from the McCarthy Family Donor Advised Fund (Mike and Nancy McCarthy) of the Omaha Community Foundation. This grant will allow us to purchase and install audio-visual equipment in our classrooms to provide instructional access for students who are learning remotely, while a teacher is also providing in-school instruction.
ASOP recently received a $10,000 grant from the McCarthy Redland Family Foundation for the ASOP 2020 wish list that focuses on three items: mental health /social-emotional wellbeing of our school community; impact of the pandemic; and technology upgrades.
ASOP is appreciative of all our donors who are helping with these programs!
ASOP was so happy to finally celebrate graduation with our 2020 seniors! On August 5, we held an outdoor graduation in the school's parking lot. Students and families sat in family clusters, snacking on cookies and beverages. Each student was recognized and received his/her diploma. The weather was perfect for the celebration.
Thank you to all the families and staff who participated and to our commencement speaker Sherry Kuehl, who called our graduates resiliency warriors!

Watching our Garden Grow
During the summer, although students were not at the school, Liz continued to work in the garden. She put in pavers and pea gravel to make the garden more accessible and neat. Thanks for the dedication, Liz!
