Our Approach

The KIPP Difference

Equipping students for success

At KIPP, teachers, students, and families are all united around the same goal—college and choice-filled lives. Through our collective hard work and commitment, KIPP students complete college at a rate that is above the national average for all students and four times higher than students of similar socioeconomic backgrounds.

Strength of Character

Success in life depends on more than academic learning. We help students foster character strengths like optimism, curiosity, and grit that will help them succeed in school and beyond.

Highly Skilled Teachers & Leaders

Great schools require great teachers and school leaders. We recruit the best talent for our scholars, empower our school teams, and invest in leadership and training rather than in bureaucracy.
