• Welcome to The KARS Academy!

    Knowledge Always Reigns Supreme - Learning In Action!

    The KARS Academy is the brainchild of Keisha A Rivers, who as an educator, dreamed of creating a "school without walls" where students could actively engage with others, actively participate in the process of learning and apply concepts to create success. Fast forward to today, and The KARS Academy provides opportunities for people from around the world to explore new topics, exchange ideas and create opportunities for their own growth and development.

     

    Although it's housed virtually, The KARS Academy is not just another "online training" website. In addition to on-demand courses, the Academy offers opportunities for students to collaborate in learning cohorts and provides companies and organizations with opportunities to create customized professional development modules for its teams and employee groups. Whether you are joining the Academy as an individual or participating as a part of an organizational group, you can be assured that you will be able to participate fully in your learning experience.

     

    The KARS Academy is more than just an online school---it's a place to create and apply learning!

    Learning Levels: Choose what works for you!

    Because we recognize that learning for different purposes demands different approaches, we've created several Learning Levels to assist you in creating a learning experience that best meets your needs. Within each Learning Level, you are able to enhance your opportunity to learn, retain and apply concepts in ways that will insure your success. Groups, organizations and companies who wish to enhance their professional development offerings can take advantage of our Learning Levels to create a customized plan for departments, teams and individuals.

    Level 1: On-Demand Learning Library

    When you need to enhance your skills

    Our On-Demand Learning Library provides courses on a variety of topics specifically designed to provide step-by-step instruction on "how to" do a particular task successfully. These courses are best for beginners or those who want to refresh their skills. Because new courses are always being added, option is provided through a membership that grants unlimited access to all courses in the library.

    Level 2: Development Groups

    When you need to learn from and with others

    Our Development Groups provide opportunties for students to collaborate with and learn from others as they participate in development courses. These courses are more focused on learning and application of concepts, not just skill acquisition. Students in this level will be able to ask questions, participate in discussions and collaborate with others in the completion of course requirements.

    Level 3: Facilitated Learning Cohorts

    When you need a guided learning experience

    Our Facilitated Learning Cohorts are designed to create a collaborative, active, applied learning environment where students are able to receive guidance, facilitation and support. Students are grouped into virtual learning cohorts that work together in real time with a facilitator to collaborate, identify problems, design solutions, outline strategies, develop and implement action plans.  

    Level 4: Immersion Experiences

    When you need on-site applied learning

    Our Immersion Experiences are live, on-site intensives designed to create an opportunity for students to work together in applied learning teams to develop solutions to identified problems. In these working sessions, students focus on the application of concepts to address real-world issues. The purpose of these sessions is to equip students to transfer and apply their acquired knowledge to their work environment upon completition of the course sessions. Immersion Experiences may vary in length depending on the scope of the concepts to be addressed.

    Your time -- maximized.

    The KARS Academy offers learning opportunities that enable you to participate in the most time effective and efficient manner. Our Learning Levels provide opportunities for you to engage in the learning process in different ways so that you can easily adjust to the demands of every day life.
