Turning Point Academy
We are an innovative and non-traditional and we offer educational choices and flexibility that customizes education for every student. We have a K-4 and 5-8 face-to-face classes at William Allen White Elementary School, 902 Exchange St. Our 9-12 program is at Emporia High School, 3302 W 18th Ave.
Our philosophy is learning can occur at any time and place and quality learning happens in both an individual and social context.The personal touch means so much in a child’s educational experience and Turning Point staff understands that each child is unique. Each student’s individual learning needs factor in to the educational goals and outcomes for which both the student and staff share responsibility.
