At Kepler, we are not only advocates of flipping the classroom, but we are also advocates of flipping the entire school. To say it another way, our goal is to not only maximize the use of classroom time, but to also eliminate the impediments of “the school” so teachers can focus on educating students. And of all the characteristics that make Kepler a unique option for parents and students, this characteristic is key.
Kepler provides students with abundant flexibility by offering a plethora of high-quality teachers who will teach exceptional courses at a variety of times within a range costs, and with a number of Christian traditions to choose from.
