The Kansas Association of Independent and Religious Schools (KAIRS) is the state’s largest organization of non-public schools. Now in its 46th year, KAIRS is committed to excellence in education and to maintaining unity within its membership and productive relationships with public school leadership.

As it represents more than 35,000 Kansas school children, almost 2,400 teachers and more than 22,000 families, KAIRS strives to ensure that children attending religious and independent schools are treated equitably in educational law, policy and programs.

For the past several years, KAIRS also provides outstanding professional development programs for non-public school administrators and Pre-K - 12 teachers.
