About The School

School Mission
Kairos empowers students to direct their own lives and learning.
Quick Facts
  • Academic Growth: compared to a nationally normed data set of 10 million students who took the NWEA MAP standardized assessments last year, our students grew 2-3X faster than the national average (depending on the subject). See here for more details. 
  • School Climate & Culture: of the approximately 7 million families who took the Panorama Education surveys this fall, our students ranked their relationships with teachers higher than 99% of participants, and they ranked the rigor of their teacher's expectations higher than 90% of participants. On that same survey, our parents ranked us in the 99th percentile in ⅗ categories: school culture, safety, and ease of engagement.
  • Innovative Model: Our intentionally diverse student body matches self-directed study with hands-on projects that apply content knowledge to real world problems and situations; they learn how to make choices in a flexible environment that resembles a college library or modern coworking space; and each of them works with an executive functioning coach who meets with them 1-1 multiple times per week to review study strategies and learning progress.
