Primary and Secondary
Osage City Schools have an annual enrollment of over 700 students. The school district recently completed approximately $11 million in improvements to the schools, including:
  • A new high school with a 750-seat performing arts auditorium.
  • The conversion of the old high school into a middle school to free up space in the elementary classrooms.
Osage City is in close proximity to two vocational-technical colleges and one community college outreach center. Flint Hills Vo-Tech in Emporia and Kaw Valley Vo-Tech in Topeka provide training for vocational or technical professions and will work with new employers to provide the necessary training.

Allen County Community College’s outreach campus at Burlingame is only eight miles from Osage City and provides a variety of different educational opportunities. In fact, the campus is so popular that its enrollment at Burlingame has overtaken enrollment on its main campus in Iola, Kansas.
