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-5 and 6-8 face-to-face classes at William Allen White Elementary School, 902 Exchange St

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 into the educational goals and outcomes for which both the student and staff share responsibility.

Our school was named for the famous editor of The Emporia Gazette, whose historical home is located to the west of our campus. We are one of six K – Grade 5 schools in Emporia. Our school serves the northeast neighborhoods and has become a center for the East Side Community Group.
