2020-2021 School Year Announcements

 

Midterm exams are January 11th through January 22nd.  The end of Quarter 2 is Friday, January 22nd. 

Seniors
We are excited to announce that we will be offering seniors the opportunity to take their senior pictures the week of January 25th. As you might imagine pulling this together during the times of Covid-19 has come with some challenges and limitations to what we can offer, but it is our hope that this opportunity is a bright spot in your year. Please note that this is a place holder as we are working through some outstanding details before we are able to assign appointment times. One very important note about pictures this year, due to Covid-19 precautions, neither the picture vendor or the school is able to provide clothing or props for the picture. Students taking pictures should plan to wear/bring their own formal clothing for the portraits. In an effort to better plan appointments we are asking you to fill out this brief survey about senior portraits. Please look out for more detailed information in the coming week.

Black History Month

This year KIPP NYC College Prep would like to celebrate Black History Month through a video compilation. Students/Family Members/Staff interested are encouraged to contact/submit contributions to Mr.King or Ms. Brice. For contact information, please check Canvas

The theme for Black History Month 2021 is The Black Family: Representation, Identity and Diversity and is set every year by the Association for the Study of African American Life and History®.  However, the video is open to various themes such as identity, culture, art, leadership, and will be inclusive of what members decide to contribute.

Ideas for Contributions/ Creation of the video:

●        What does it mean to be a black family in 2021?

●        How has being a part of a black family impacted or influenced who you are?

●        How do you and your family express your culture? – family photo or a performance can include: a dance, song, art work drawing/painting, poetry, something you made food/clothing, etc.

●        Share something about a person of color that inspires you – a piece of art or performance to honor a person of color.

Submissions need to be in by End of Day February 4th 


Together with families and communities, we create joyful, academically excellent schools
that prepare students to pursue the paths they choose—college, career, and beyond—
so they can lead fulfilling lives and build a more just world.
Academics

Students can graduate with a Regents or Advanced Regents Diploma and our school places special emphasis on completing the required coursework and tests to earn an Advanced Regents Diploma, based on the belief that students meeting this higher standard will be prepared to successfully enroll and pass entry-level college coursework. To receive an Advanced Regents Diploma, students must pass take and pass nine Regents exams: English, three Math, Global History, US History, two Science, and a language other than English. Over 90% of our students enroll in rigorous Advanced Placement (AP), Syracuse University Project Advance (SUPA), or Honors courses. Students have the choice of 19 AP courses and 4 SUPA courses, which can earn them college credits, along with 13 honors courses.

College and Career Counseling

We provide a comprehensive college and career counseling department to ensure our students engage in enriching summer programming, develop individual career plans, are fully prepared for the SAT college entrance exam, and go on to enroll in a college or career opportunity that meets their interests, abilities, and financial needs. Students take part in a two-year College Readiness sequence, consisting of College and Career Readiness (CCR) or Foundations of Career Development (FOCD) in junior year and Senior College and Career Counseling (SCCC) in senior year. Through our coursework and counseling, we have seen amazing results:

  • 95% of our students take the SAT, with over 100 points of growth on average from beginning to end of our College and Career Readiness course.
  • Over 95% of our students matriculate to college, with over 50% earning spots in supportive and competitive Opportunity Programs, over 65% of our students enrolling in a college that is ranked as Competitive or higher, and over 65% receiving financial aid that fully covers the direct costs of their college.
  • 90% of our students participate in at least one summer opportunity.
Visual and Performing Arts

We offer 24 different art electives in Visual Arts, Graphic Design, Music, Choir, Dance and Drama. We provide students with introductory, advanced and AP level courses. Our after-school programs offer choir, dance, spoken word, drama, step, visual arts, yearbook, Fall play, and Spring musical. Students can participate and perform in over 10 school productions, competitions, and outside performances throughout the school year.

Athletics

KIPP NYC College Prep offers a robust athletics program and was the first charter school to compete in the Public School Athletic League (PSAL). We offer football, soccer, volleyball, cheerleading, basketball, wrestling, baseball, softball, rugby, track and lacrosse. We have 14 varsity programs and three junior varsity programs, for a total of 17 interscholastic sports teams. Additionally, we offer intramural flag football, basketball and kickball to give students the benefits of team support in a less competitive setting. Roughly 30% of our student body participates in our athletic program, and we recently won city championships in Football, Men’s Varsity Basketball, Men’s Varsity Baseball and Women’s Varsity Rugby. Our Cheerleading program has been ranked 8th and 9th in the country the two past seasons, respectively, in the non-tumbling varsity division.
