Mission Statement

The mission of Kairos Academies is to empower students to direct their own lives and learning. By leveraging technology and reimagining traditional instruction, Kairos personalizes the learning experience and nurtures student autonomy. Our model develops not just academic knowledge, but the organizational, social, and emotional competencies students needed for true agency in our changing economy and society.

Description

Kairos Academies is St. Louis’ first personalized learning public charter school, aiming to serve 5th-12th graders in the city’s highest-need community. We empower students to direct their own lives and learning by simulating a real 21st-century learning and work environment-where students make choices over when, where, how, and with whom they work. To support that experience, Kairos provides intensive 1-1 executive function coaching, a world-class curriculum that combines online resources with hands-on projects, and one of Missouri’s only diverse-by-design student populations. Data show that Kairos’ restorative justice and self-directed learning model accelerate student social-emotional and academic growth. According to best-in-class assessments ( Panorama and NWEA MAP), Kairos ranks in the 99th percentile for teacher-student relationships and grow in reading, math, and language use at 2-3x the national average.
