Invitation to the K-12 Innovative Education Expo in Wichita
This is your personal invitation to the K-12 Innovative Education Expo, a groundbreaking event that’s set to transform the way you think about your child’s education. On Saturday, March 2, from 10 am to 12 pm at the Museum of World Treasures, this expo isn’t just another school fair.
It’s a gateway to a community of innovative microschools, homeschool co-ops, hybrid schools, and education service providers – all under one roof, all ready to connect with you.
Meet the Innovators in Education
Imagine a place where you can have real, meaningful conversations with the very people who founded these unique educational institutions. These are leaders who have stepped away from the conventional system to create learning environments that prioritize individual attention, foster genuine passion for learning, and adapt to the needs of each student.
They understand that education isn’t one-size-fits-all and are committed to offering alternatives that might just be the perfect fit for your child.
A Spectrum of Educational Models
At the K-12 Innovative Education Expo, you’ll encounter an inspiring array of educational models, each catering to different needs and philosophies. Picture a landscape where Christian schools stand alongside secular institutions, both offering rich, diverse curricula but with different foundational approaches.
Discover play-based and outdoor schools that turn learning into an adventure, and schools tailored for neurodivergent students where individual differences are celebrated and nurtured. Some schools and programs cater to younger children, some to older children, and some schools offer a full range of K-12 studies.
From Classical to Cutting-Edge
You’ll also find classical schools emphasizing time-honored educational traditions, next to cutting-edge STEM and project-based learning schools that prepare students for a rapidly evolving future. Discussion-based learning models will showcase their emphasis on critical thinking and student-led dialogue.
This Expo is a unique opportunity to explore a spectrum of educational possibilities, all dedicated to fostering a love of learning in a way that best suits your child.
Your Chance to Explore and Engage
Embrace this opportunity to engage with educators who are eager to listen, understand, and collaborate with you in crafting an educational experience that goes beyond the conventional. This Expo is your chance to break free from the one-size-fits-all approach and discover environments where your child’s unique talents and needs are not just accommodated but celebrated.
Whether you’re drawn to the holistic approach of play-based learning, the rigorous challenge of a classical education, the innovation of STEM, or the personalized touch of schools designed for neurodivergent learners, your exploration at the Expo will open doors to new possibilities.
