ABOUT KIPP NYC
At KIPP (Knowledge is Power Program) we believe in the creation of inspired lives. As part of a national network of 200+ KIPP schools, KIPP NYC schools promise every student the opportunity for a choice-filled life.
When we began in one classroom in 1995 in the South Bronx, we promised our first kids and families we’d do whatever it took to teach the character and academic skills needed to succeed. Today, we make the same sacred promise to more than 8,000 students and alumni on their way to and through college. Keeping good on our promise year in and year out has helped KIPP alumni graduate college at a dramatically higher rate than their peers.
