Founded in May 2019, Kleine Klasse Schule started as a non-profit tutoring and educational service center in Washington County, located in West Alexander, PA. The first year was dedicated to preparing a platform for education that would be equitable and accessible to all individuals, regardless of age, ethnicity, race, religion, gender, or location. The center was quickly set up to provide one-on-one tutoring, consultations, and grant writing. An online venue providing videos and video-conferencing, as well as email and text assistance for homework help and our other services, began right before the COVID19 social distance restrictions which led to schools and universities transitioning to remote learning.
KKS’s core focus is on STEM/STEAM programming but has access to Reading, English, Cultural Studies, and study skill professionals possessing university level experience. This group of highly qualified professionals jointly will collaborate to provide most subjects from k – college level. Quality faculty are significantly versed in areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM). The center is dedicated to strengthening academics, providing one-on-one tutoring, running small group lessons (9 or less) with a concentration on finding a way to fund tutoring for adults living in poverty wanting to earn their High School Equivalency Diploma. The Center includes services by assisting other non-profits with grant writing, consulting, programming, promotions, and fundraising. It is the desire of the center to collaborate with other non-profits for the betterment of the community, nationally, and globally.
Recently, the non-profit has put together a plan to help young adults find their way, after experiencing failure. With little support after high school, some individuals find themselves lost due to failure or lack of direction. Some may drop out of college, become lethargic in an uninspired situation, and just look to survive day to day when they have so much more untapped potential. This program will rekindle their dreams and provide the confidence, education, and social capital needed to move forward and find a way out of their current dilemma. The support system will involve educating and providing social capital to reach intended goals. This project may involve economic development, housing, and community improvements. In addition, the feasibility of opening a small private school will be investigated to be a future goal.
In addition to our high-level instructors, we have corporate relationships that give our students the ability to gain industry level certifications. This means that when they complete our programs, they’re job ready. To enhance the program, KKS places the students in apprenticeship programs helping gain corporate experience. These apprenticeships will be in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Art or Mathematical (STEAM) fields and will give the corporations a feel for how these candidates match their corporate structure. If the apprentice is not hired, they can continue to work with KKS to adjust their weaknesses or gain additional help for more opportunities.
Kleine Klasse Schule is a worldwide organization based in western Pennsylvania sitting on the borders of the Ohio & West Virginia. Since we are 80% or more online, our tutoring reach is limitless.
