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.
We create a culture of support and achievement and personalize learning based on a student’s needs, skills, and interests.
Focus on Character
We believe that our students need both a strong academic foundation and well-developed character strengths to succeed in college and the world beyond.
Teachers & Leaders
We empower educators to lead school teams and invest in training to help them grow as professionals.
Safe, Structured, & Nurturing Environments
Our schools provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment so that our students thrive and maximize their learning.
Counselors support students as they prepare for college and career, and navigate social, academic, and financial challenges while in college.
"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."
