Enroll Your Child
KIPP STRIVE Primary is a free, public charter school. Admission to KIPP STRIVE Primary is granted to students regardless of prior academic record, conduct or socioeconomic background. This means there are no academic requirements that need to be met for enrollment. The only enrollment requirement is that your child resides within the Atlanta Public Schools district. If there are more interested students and families than we have space for, a lottery is conducted for admission. Upon enrollment, you will be asked to sign the school’s Commitment to Excellence which outlines the commitments you, your child, and your child’s teacher agree to make to ensure a successful experience at KIPP STRIVE Primary.
Enrollment for the 2014-15 school year has completed. Any new enrollment applications will be placed at the end of the waitling list. The enrollment period for the 2015-2016 school year will open on January 1, 2015.

Process for Lottery
If the number of enrollment forms to KIPP STRIVE Primary exceeds capacity, a random selection process will be used for admission, with first preference given to siblings of students already enrolled in the school as well as children of staff and teachers of the school. This lottery will be held on the school day following the enrollment deadlines after which the number of enrollment forms exceeds capacity.
After the lottery, interested parents can still submit enrollment forms; their children are added to our waiting list on a first-come, first-served basis.
