Board and Administration

Kepler has a dual-system of governance so we can meet the needs of our students and the needs of the College itself. Everyone involved believes in the power of high-quality astrological education to help ensure astrology's future.

Kepler's Board of Trustees is dedicated to ensuring Kepler's financial viability and oversees its operations. It consists of members of the larger astrological community, instructors, and former students. 

The Administrative Council is dedicated to the continued review and development of our educational programs to ensure Kepler meets the needs of our students. It consists of the President and long-term teachers in the program.

The Kepler College Board of Trustees helps guide the college in its development, strategic planning and financial soundness. Board members have a passion for both astrology and the promotion of excellence in astrological education.
