Kaleidoscope, a nonprofit organization founded by proactive parents, offers a diverse array of educational opportunities for school-aged children in Houghton and the surrounding Keweenaw area. Kaleidoscope aims to cater to the diverse needs of families... flexible tuition options, including free tuition through school district partnerships, pay-per-elective models, and limited scholarships, ensure accessibility for all.

Driven by the belief that families should have a say in their children’s education, Kaleidoscope fosters community collaboration between homeschooling and traditional schooling families. By providing holistic support and engaging learning experiences through classes and community events, Kaleidoscope endeavors to elevate at-home and community-based learning for all families seeking educational support in Houghton and its neighboring areas.


Staff members are available via phone, email, Zoom, and in person at both Kaleidoscope locations. If you’re not sure which electives are right for your student, we can go through your options with you.
