KIPP NYC accepts enrollment applications online or in person at any of our schools. See links below for information on school tours and open house dates.
First week of April, 2020
Students are randomly selected through a blind lottery. The lottery is conducted at our mid-town office and is overseen by a certified, independent auditor.
First week of April, 2020
All families will be notified of their lottery status (whether they are selected or put on the waitlist) via a letter mailed to their home address in April.
After April 1, 2020
Families can apply to the waitlist and will be contacted if seats become available.
“Who wouldn’t want to come to a school where you’re motivated? If I could grab every student out there that doesn’t go to KIPP and bring them to KIPP I would because they have so much to offer here.”
“My kids feel like they are part of a movement… and they are going somewhere!”
“This school focuses on my daughter’s academics and her character. She’s learned character strengths that will help her academically and help her grow into a successful young woman. I am very happy with the growth she’s made at KIPP.”
