Kairos is held at Fatima Retreat House in Indianapolis.

Kairos helps students grow in self-knowledge and self-esteem in an atmosphere of particularly strong peer and adult support. Students grow in their understanding of their relationships with friends, family and God. Students who have made Kairos have found it to be one of the best experiences of high school. A follow-up program helps students continue their growth.
