Higher education for all.

Kepler is a nonprofit university program based in Africa and designed for the developing world. Our students get the best of online learning paired with in-person seminars — all while students work toward a U.S.-accredited degree and a great job after graduation. Our goal is to create a global network of universities, beginning in Rwanda, that deliver the skills that emerging economies need for a price that all talented students can afford.

Online and Offline

Kepler is pioneering a new way to lower the cost of university while maintaining quality: pair digital content with a team of expert local teachers. Without the need to hire expensive faculty, Kepler is priced for students from all backgrounds.

An American B.A. in Africa

Kepler offers an elite credential to its graduates through a close partnership with Southern New Hampshire University’s innovative College for America program. And the degree they earn is the exact same that a student in the U.S. would receive on graduation.

3rd Year Kepler Student

Before I arrived at Kepler, I never felt confident enough to speak in class. Now I know that my voice will be heard. Girls and boys all speak up here.

Antoine Niyigena

3rd Year Kepler Student

I had the country’s highest score on our national physics exam. Without Kepler, I may not have even been able to afford to attend university.

Every student in the world should have the same opportunity to learn as we do here in Rwanda. I cannot wait until Kepler is everywhere in Africa.
