What Makes KIPP Different?

We believe that an excellent college-prep education will set students up for success in whatever life path they choose. Our students complete college at a rate that is above the national average for all students and four times higher than that of students from similar economic backgrounds.

"My KIPP school taught me to be a leader. The teachers are always telling me that I have a good life a head of me, that I'm smart, that I'm a good person, and it makes me think more of myself and my future."
