High School Placement
KIPP Minnesota provides high school placement services to our eighth grade students to ensure that all of our students attend college-preparatory high schools. Each KIPP eighth grader applies to at least three high school options. The KIPP Through College staff coordinates and advises students throughout the high school placement process, from initial wish list to matriculation. Finally, eighth grade students and their families learn about how KIPP Through College will support them during high school and to and through college.
High School Persistence
All alumni who complete eighth grade at KIPP receive free individualized guidance from his/her KIPP Through College alumni advisor. Our college-focused advising begins in ninth grade. Freshman and sophomore years are focused on adjusting to high school and getting off to a great start with a strong GPA.
KIPP Through College guides high school juniors and seniors to match to their future college, through building wish lists, completing college applications, and securing financial aid.
COLLEGE PERSISTENCE ADVISING
Throughout college, students are matched with a KIPP Through College advisor who tracks their progress in college and provides support as needed.
Choosing a College
At KIPP, we focus on College Match. The Four Keys below provide KIPPsters a framework to use during the college decision-making process to identify their best ‘match’ college. Students who “match” well are more likely to graduate within 4-6 years. Ideally, students think about these four keys long before they actually start to apply to college:
