Our Story

Kaleidoscope grew out of a single question: What would we teach in high school if we started from a blank slate…

...if we wanted to spark engagement

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

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

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

....if we wanted to encourage citizenship and stewardship?

Our courses and fellowships are designed to answer these questions.
