Homeschooling, at its heart, is parent-led, home-based education. At Kairos, we enable families through curriculum, seminars, and teaching materials to work towards the best possible home environment for their children’s schooling. Kairos parents teach and guide their kids in person, often experiencing new lessons along with their kids!
Committed parents are the very best teachers students can have. By providing whatever we can to help families reach their homeschooling goals, we strive to make lifelong learning a possibility for all of our beloved families. When the kids learn, the parents do too!
Learning a new language is a time of great discovery and great challenge. Whether students are second language learners who are immersed in their target language’s culture or foreign language learners who are attempting to acquire a language not available in their immediate environment, students need assistance to make acquiring a new tongue a successful endeavor.
At Kairos, our Chinese curriculum is designed for heritage language learners – students who have experienced the Chinese language in their family and home, who understand the value of its legacy. Filipino is approached as a second language while English is built as a mother tongue. Students are expected to master English and basic Chinese in preschool and to learn Filipino starting from Grade One.
By combining home environment and school instruction, we aim to make multilingual learning a reality for all.
This June, Kairos celebrates one year of the Lord’s gracious leading in establishing a homeschool provider that serves the unique needs of the Christian, Filipino-Chinese community. By supplying curriculum, community, and guidance for our families, we support every family and child in the Kairos family with love and compassion. We praise the Lord for every individual He has used for His glory! Join us in giving thanks for the Lord’s continuous grace.

The first year of homeschooling is the most decisive for families, and Kairos tries to make it work for you. Not sure how to homeschool? Not a problem.
For families with children 3 years of age, our nursery program includes all learning materials and four skills-based assessments sessions. Parents join our training seminars and workshops as we help you to foster your child’s growth in behavioral, cognitive, academic, language, and physical development. Even young children can learn great things.
For families with older children, we serve you by providing all learning materials and regular checkpoints in the form of quarter exams. Students do their daily work at home before coming to school for exams four weeks each year. It helps to know how your child is doing!
Don’t let the thought overwhelm you. There’s a first time for everything, and we’re right here to help.
Too late for the annual Open House? Set an appointment with our office, and we’ll make sure we address your concerns. Every time a family visits, we make sure to explore your unique needs as a family.
If you’re not sure about homeschooling, a visit is not a commitment! Our administrators talk with each family to help you make the best possible choice. We explore our uniquely curated curriculum, and we go in detail about every little thing that makes Kairos work.
Let us be part of your decision process! Reach us through e-mail, phone, or social media.
In a growing global village, Kairos helps in equipping our children by requiring each student to learn Filipino, English, as well as Chinese throughout our grade levels. Preschool students start by listening and learning conversational Chinese, while elementary students add literacy into the mix. Students are encouraged to learn direct character recognition, without relying on phonetic symbols or picture prompts. All students are required to learn Chinese – for speaking, reading, and writing!
Let us partner with your family in raising multilingual learners. You learn a language, you open a world!
Applications are officially open for school year 2017-2018! In order to avail of our full-service homeschool experience, families must submit their complete applications by March 31, 2017.
Make sure you don’t miss any requirements by visiting our application form page right here. We will contact all applicants regarding entrance interviews and acceptance soon after! Have a wonderful day!
Kairos is happy to announce that we are opening our doors to Grade 4 students for school year 2017-2018! Having served families in Nursery to Grade 3 during this current school year, Kairos will expand our horizons one school year at a time to meet the needs of homeschooling families. The adventure never stops!
