SouthWinds Academy is a public virtual school within the Otis-Bison school district. As a virtual school, SouthWinds Academy can offer services to students not only in Kansas, but literally anywhere around the world where students have internet access.
SouthWinds Academy is designed to meet the individual needs of each student. Since the goal of education should be to help students succeed outside of school, we help students create a personal plan of study.
SouthWinds Academy is an accredited 6-12 grade alternative to the traditional public, private, or home-school curriculum. Our school is designed to equip students with the tools they need to learn successfully from home. Students are exposed to core subjects such as language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. We also provide a large selection of electives to help students customize personal plans of study.
Students located in Kansas can enroll at no cost as their funding comes from state sources. Students outside Kansas can take courses on a tuition basis.
