UPDATED 9/19/2020

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.

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.


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.

SAT Update 8/24/2020
Good morning students and families of the Class of 2021,

The safety of all of our community members is our number one priority. We have been in close communication with the CollegeBoard throughout the summer and due to safety precautions surrounding COVID-19, we will not be hosting the August or September SAT at our high school. This is in alignment with all New York City testing sites. We acknowledge the hard work and preparation the Class of 2021 has put in towards mastery of the SAT material; this work ethic will carry over to the college or career process students will embark on during their senior year.

Colleges across the country, including the CUNY and SUNY systems, have decided to suspend SAT requirements as part of the admissions process for the class of 2021. Colleges have stated that students who are unable or choose not to submit test scores will not be disadvantaged in the admissions process. Our college and career team is closely monitoring the release of updated admissions policies and your individual college counselor will discuss them with you in more depth while reviewing your college list. Students and families can expect outreach from your individual college counselor within the next two weeks. You will also be receiving additional information during Orientation next week. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Mr. Robert Santos, our Manager of College Readiness, at, or Ms. Rebekah Bambling, our Director of College Counseling, at, with any questions you may have.
