HIGH EXPECTATIONS:

We set clearly defined and measurable high expectations for academic achievement and conduct in order to create and reinforce a culture of achievement and support. We know that every student is different and we personalize learning based on a student’s needs, skills, and interests.

SAFE, STRUCTURED + NURTURING ENVIRONMENTS:

Students need physical and emotional safety in order to take risks and learn from their successes and their mistakes. Our schools provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment with minimal distractions and more time for both academics and extracurriculars, so our students love school and maximize their learning.

STRENGTH OF CHARACTER:

Success in life depends on both academics and character. We help students foster character strengths that are essential for their own success and well-being. And we empower them to express their voice with power and to improve the world around them.

KIPP THROUGH COLLEGE:

Our counselors and advisers support students as they prepare for and select the right college for their needs and interests. After high school, we help KIPP alumni navigate the social, academic, and financial challenges they might encounter while in college.

 
I chose KIPP because the other local schools weren’t working for us... I’ve seen my daughter make great progress overcoming her learning disabilities since she started there.

They really cared about us. They didn’t just care about our grades. They cared about us as a person.
