kairos (Anc. Greek): "the spirit of opportunity"
At Kairos, we believe now is the opportune moment to rethink public education. That's why we replace lectures with engaging projects and dictatorial "behavior managers" with 1-1 executive functioning coaches who help students learn how to manage their own schedule and work habits. Kairos students practice navigating real-world choices (such as when, where, how, and with whom to work) within a safe, supportive school environment. Kairos develops students not just into freethinkers, ready to thrive in a modern economy, but self-governing citizens, ready to lead both themselves and their communities.
