CHARACTER & ACADEMICS

KIPP’s Formula

Academics + Character = Balanced Approach for Success

At KIPP Metro Atlanta Schools, we believe that success in college and the world beyond is made possible by a strong academic foundation and well-developed character strengths. KIPP’s longstanding motto sums it up: Work hard. Be nice. Character education and focus is embedded in classroom lessons, school culture, and professional development training.
