KIPP Forward Results

KIPP Forward is part of the broader KIPP approach that helps eliminate the opportunity gap between students from high- and low-income communities.

KIPPsters set a high bar for their futures.


For some, that means being the first in their family to graduate from college or buy a home. For others, it means serving our country or creating a business. KIPP Colorado Public Schools ensure that each student has the skills and confidence to pursue any path that leads to their highest aspirations.

Across the country, KIPPsters are making their mark. They are earning degrees, building businesses, reforming policy, serving their communities, and rising through the ranks of companies and organizations throughout the nation. Together, our KIPPsters are creating a future without limits.

“By focusing on my goals, I was able to get accepted to the Air Force Academy where I now study system engineering in the aeronautical field. We hear the words “grit” and “perseverance” a lot. These words remind me of KIPP Colorado because we encourage each other to succeed. These words continue to influence me in my journey as I go through basic training and become an officer and to better prepare me for my future.”
