Freelance Content Contributors, K-12 Personalized Education Topics

ABOUT US

KaiPod Learning is creating a microschool network where students learn at their own pace using a digital curriculum, get in-person academic support from an educator, and socialize with their peers.

We support microschools in two different ways.

  • We operate learning pods across the country, where students gather at KaiPod Learning Centers, working on a personalized learning curriculum and benefiting from the guidance of highly qualified Learning Coaches.
  • We partner with entrepreneurial founders to launch and grow microschools in their local communities. Our partners operate unique microschools relying on proven pedagogies (e.g., project-based, Montessori) targeting specific student audiences (e.g., gifted students, neurodiverse students, student-athletes).

Through this work, KaiPod Learning will connect 1 million students around the world through the power of microschooling.

The name KaiPod comes from the Greek word kairos, which means “the right time to act.” After the pandemic, millions of parents are saying this is the right time for them to act and choose a better learning environment for their child. Learn more about our company here.

We are backed by YCombinator, Reach Capital, and several other top venture firms.
