KIPP Public Schools

KIPP Public Schools is a national network of public charter schools that prepares students with the skills and confidence to create the future they want for themselves, their communities, and us all. ​We are a national network of 280 schools with 120,000+ students and 55,000+ alumni.

In 2023, Mathematica released a national study showing that students who attended KIPP for both middle and high school were nearly twice as likely to persist and graduate from a four-year college compared to their peers who did not attend KIPP. In addition, KIPP students were 67% more likely to enroll in college than those who did not attend KIPP.
