THE MEANING OF KHEPERA
Khepera is an ancient Egyptian (KMT) word and a concept in itself. Khepera Charter School loosedly translates the term as a "rebirth of academic and cultural excellence."
A more proper translation would consider the etymology of the term. Khepera is a short version of Khepera-Ra and it more exactly translates as the Creation of the Sun.
In our Ankh Ws Snb, we translate Khepera as "the Rising Sun." In our greetings,
we also translate Khepera as "the morning".
"RENEWING OUR COMMITMENT TO ACADEMIC AND CULTURAL EXCELLENCE"
