Kairos isn't like anything St. Louis has ever seen. We offer a private school experience—akin to AltSchool or the Khan Lab School—at a public school price (read: free). Our integrated, innovative learning hub is focused on empowering students to direct their own lives and learning. To do that, we're bringing the best of the best to St. Louis. Our curriculum and approach come Summit Learning, award-winning schools that are ranked among the best in America.
Teachers are at the heart of schools that use Summit Learning.
Our curriculum is built on a century of research and comes with stunning results.
Your child is not average, so we're not going to give them an average, cookie-cutter education. Kairos coaches will personalize your child's school experience—checking in with them every day, reporting to you every week, and guiding their growth every year. Kairos uses award-winning restorative justice community practices to develop our students' social-emotional skills. We promise that by graduation your child will be both a freethinker, ready to thrive in a liberal arts college and the 21st-century economy, and a free citizen, ready to lead both themself and their community.
when kids are allowed to self-direct
With an executive functioning coach, students set individualized growth goals and strategize choices about when, where, how, and with whom to study.
Students work on challenging material at their own pace, relying on small class sizes and a personalized learning platform to support them.
At the end of learning loop, students reflect on whether they met their goals, identify unique needs & strengths, and plan how to grow and improve next time.

Makiah, Grade 6
"I love when I hit a growth goal! I know that I learned, and I'm happy that I get to do more things, like study on the couch. I feel like I can make more decisions for myself now. It's also cool that we get a say in the community. The student council petitioned to change the dress code. They made a proposal, presented it at a meeting with teachers, and got parent feedback. It went into effect the next week!"
and parents do too
Elizabeth (Kairos Mom)
"Kairos changed the trajectroy of my son's life. Before Kairos, he hated school. He'd come home frustrated and take out his anger at home. Now he's excited to go school: he has friends, he's grown multiple grade levels, and he's a different kid at home. He can't wait to return from breaks!"
