about this business

Founded in February 2012, IHS is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing home-schooled students the opportunity to participate in competitive athletics and wholesome extracurricular activities. Our inaugural year was a success, in no small part due to the contributions of generous individuals and businesses. Together we served over 30 different student athletes in our varsity football, basketball and cheer teams, became a Kansas State High School Activities Association approved program, competed in 40+ varsity games and even won the National Division II Homeschool basketball championship! This year we've added several more sports for both high school and junior high aged kids, bringing the total number of teams to eleven. In addition to sports, we’ve created a homeschool yearbook staff, an opportunity for homeschoolers to serve on a student council, and launched a broadcast journalism program that we call K-IHS. Each of these programs is run by homeschool students with adult volunteer experts who serve as mentors. By the end of this year, we estimate that we will have close to 150 active homeschoolers enrolled in our programs!To better serve these young people, we have big plans! In September we were awarded a $700,000 grant to help us build a multi-use artificial turf stadium. Upon completion, it will become home to our football and soccer teams. We are currently working with a number of potential benefactors to finish funding the $1.5 million endeavor. When we complete the project we will turn our attention to the construction of the IHS Activities Complex, complete with sports facilities (indoor sports courts, locker rooms, a weight room, etc.) as well as a contemporary Fine Arts Center (with a stage, band/orchestra room, art studio, etc.). Homeschooling is the fastest growing form of education in the country and building these facilities in the heart of America will help us keep up with the ever increasing demand.
