Our Story

Kaleidoscope grew out of a single question: What would we teach in high school if we started from a blank slate? This gave way to a host of other questions. What would we teach if we wanted to…

...spark engagement

...teach skills that will matter for forty years of work and life, not just the four years of college?

...introduce students to the issues and dynamics that will play out over their lifetimes?

...incorporate the most important concepts we've learned in the last fifty years?

....encourage citizenship and stewardship?

Our courses and fellowships are designed to answer these questions.
