The Foundational Blocks of Kepler College

Early Donations helped make Kepler what it is today… We are grateful those who helped get Kepler College started.

In acknowledgement of our history and those who made Kepler College possible through their early donations read through our Founders Circle

The Founders Circle

The Kepler College Founders Circle was created May of 1999 and completed in 2001. The Founders Circle was an honorary society recognizing the contribution and commitment of persons woh came together to help lay the foundation of Kepler College and endusred there was sufficient money to develop our program and open our doors. Members of the Founders Circle contributed at least $25,000 dollars (US) and share their vision with other potential donors by letting their example become a pattern for others to follow
