    The Missouri A+ Schools program provides funding for eligible high school graduates to pursue postsecondary education. North ɫƵ Schools' first two schools were designated as A+ Schools in 1994. NKC Schools was also the first district in the ɫƵ metro area to receive A+ designation. 

    Each year, hundreds of NKC Schools students participate in the A+ program and earn benefits to pursue their future goals. Students must meet eligibility criteria to access program funding. To participate, students should contact their school's A+ coordinator.

    Instituted as part of Senate Bill 380 (Outstanding Schools Act) by the , the A+ Schools Program has set three goals:

    1. All students graduate from high school.
    2. All students complete a selection of high school studies that is challenging and for which there are identified learning expectations.
    3. All students proceed from high school graduation to college or post-secondary vocational or technical school, or high-wage job with workplace skill development opportunities.
