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.

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 mid-April.
“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.”Carmen, KIPP NYC Parent
“My kids feel like they are part of a movement… and they are going somewhere!”Tamika, KIPP NYC Parent
“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.”Yajara, KIPP NYC Parent
