Kaleidoscope Self-Pay is a way for students to participate in Kaleidoscope classes even if they are not enrolled through CLK’s Virtual Programs, or a way for current Kaleidoscope students to take extra electives.


There are three types of electives for Self-Pay:


14 or 28 weeks of interactive online content.



14 or 28 weeks of in-person, once a week, class with an instructor at our Kaleidoscope: L’Anse location.


Virtual and Seated

14 or 28 weeks of in-person, once a week, class with an instructor at our Kaleidoscope: L’Anse location, and correlating interactive online content for each of those weeks.

What can I expect in a Kaleidoscope virtual class?


Our virtual classes are meant to provide a framework for activities that you might expand on at home. They include resource ideas and regular instructor/student communication through the virtual platform Seesaw. They DO NOT include in-person or virtual face-to-face instruction. Students log into Seesaw each week and complete an activity, usually using a virtual resource. Instructors communicate with students about their completed activities. Once you register for your virtual class you’ll have access to the following:



This includes a class description, objectives, a general learning plan, and an assessment plan.
