About

An Innovator in Online Education

Kepler unites students with high-quality teachers through a powerful platform designed to support the best possible educational experience and economical benefit for both educators and students. One way to think about it is a free market for classical liberal arts education.

For the Student

Kepler provides a network of distinguished educators, quality courses, and a diploma track that fits a conscious budget and a flexible schedule all on one simple and easy-to-use platform. While Kepler is not a school in the strictest sense, our culture, platform, and diploma track provides all the best features of an online school while allowing homeschool parents as much flexibility and choice in teachers as possible. 

For the Teacher

Kepler allows teachers to fulfill their vocation while simultaneously providing a sustainable income and ample margin for personal and educational development. Our innovative Agile platform, robust academic consortium, and generous compensation plan provides teachers with all the tools, support, and flexibility they need to develop their unique brand as independent educators.

Why Kepler? 

Kepler is inspired by the medieval scholar, Johannes Kepler, widely known for his commitment to Christ, the liberal arts, and the advancement of science in the West.

Johannes Kepler

As we at Kepler embrace and advance liberal (also called classical) education in its full orb, we feel Johannes Kepler accurately exemplifies the courageous, innovative, intellectual, and robust approach to education and human flourishing needed in the modern age. We are humbly attempting to cultivate such a spirit within our academic consortium.

Core Values

Merely Christian

We embrace those essential, common, and core beliefs left by Christ and the Apostles to the church catholic, the body of Jesus Christ on Earth, held through the ages by all orthodox Christian traditions alike.

Broadly Classical

We engage students in the pursuit and acquisition of the liberal arts, that knowledge which is pleasurable for its own sake, and which frees the mind and prepares the soul to be wise and virtuous. 

Historically Conservative

We teach students to recognize, value and delight in the permanent things and pursue necessary and healthy change according to the contours of the natural and created order.
