The Associated Colleges of Central Kansas (ACCK) is a consortium composed of six private, liberal arts, four-year, church-related, co-educational institutions located within 40 miles of McPherson, Kansas. The member schools are listed to the right.
ACCK was established in 1966 as a chartered corporation to enhance the contribution of the member institutions.  In partnership with the member colleges, we currently offer academic programs with courses of study in Athletic Training, Secondary Methods and High-Incidence Special Education.  The Special Education program provides the foundation for working with students who have mild to moderate disabilities in kindergarten through sixth grade or sixth through twelfth grade. Our Secondary Methods program provides a background in teaching literature, mathematics, humanities, and science for grades 6-12. We also offer a program in Athletic Training which provides students with the knowledge to treat and prevent sports related injuries.  
ACCK education programs are a hybrid of in-person and online learning, while Athletic Training sessions always meet in person. All of our programs place an emphasis on hands-on learning. Students are prepared to be stewards of their community, helping others from all walks of life. 

Administrative Staff:
Beverly Schottler, Program Director and Special Education Department Head
Russ Graber, Athletic Training Coordinator
James Allen, IT Support
Terri Smidt, Program Assistant

ACCK Teacher Interview Day is scheduled for Thursday, March 8, 2018, at Sterling College, Sterling, Kansas.
