At KIPP:MA, one core belief is that we teach in schools and communities, not just in classrooms. The impact of the work we do in our schools is multiplied when we can also empower our families and communities with the training and resources necessary to live a life of choice.
Our Family and Community Learning program offers ongoing classes to the parents, families and community members of our KIPPsters. We offer English as a Second Language, Citizenship, Computer Literacy classes, parenting workshops, book clubs, as well as community social gatherings, such as potlucks or movie screenings. We currently have over 300 adults enrolled in our Lynn program, and over 150 enrolled in Boston with many on the waiting list.

In January 2017, for the first time, we offered a series of three application nights on January 10, 19 and February 7, 2017 for prospective Boston families so parents can learn about KIPP and complete the common application for the public charter school lottery. Student ambassadors will also gave tours of the school.
From January 17 through February 28, 2017, KIPP Academy Boston offered six free Civic Engagement sessions to help parents and members of the local community become educated leaders in what civic engagement is and how to be engaged in your community. Click on Engagement Series (2) for the flyer outlining the session descriptions.
On April 25, 2017 we launched our second Civic Engagement Series to continue through June 13. Click here to learn more about this series.
