KIPP Colorado Schools participates in Denver Public Schools’ (DPS) School Choice enrollment process. To be eligible to attend a KIPP Colorado school, you must submit a School Choice form. You can find more information about school choice and the enrollment process here.
Please keep in mind that, unlike traditional middle schools, KIPP Sunshine Peak Academy and KIPP Northeast Denver Middle School begin in fifth grade, and that is the year our middle schools have the most available seats for new students. Similarly, our high schools, KIPP Denver Collegiate High School and KIPP Northeast Denver Leadership Academy, enroll the largest number of new KIPP students in ninth grade. All KIPP Colorado schools will accept new students in later grades should there be seats available.
If you are a current KIPP 8th grade student moving into 9th grade, you will automatically be enrolled in the KIPP high school in your region, KIPP Denver Collegiate in Southwest Denver or KIPP Northeast Denver Leadership Academy in the Far Northeast.
If you are currently a 4th grade student moving into 5th grade, you will be automatically be enrolled in the KIPP middle school in your region, KIPP Northeast Denver Middle School or KIPP Sunshine Peak Academy.
