Who We Are

Together, A Future Without Limits

KIPP Massachusetts Public Charter Schools is an open-enrollment, public, tuition-free charter school network of 3 campuses and 2,200 students. We have campuses in Lynn (K-12) and Boston (K-8).

Together with our families and communities, we create joyful and identity-affirming schools where students achieve excellent and equitable academic outcomes. We believe doing this ensures that our students are prepared to pursue any path they choose — college, career, and beyond — so they can lead fulfilling lives and build a more just world.

What do we commit to?

Through the KIPP national network, data has proven that a consistent KIPP K-12 education increases the college matriculation and graduation rates of our students and alumni. KIPP Massachusetts provides a K-16 education to our students in Boston and Lynn, but we do not stop there. We continue to provide support through college matriculation, career, and their life beyond. We believe there are six key differentiators that make KIPP Massachusetts unique.

High Expectations & Joyful Excellence

We challenge our students’ minds while nurturing their joy of learning. We prepare every student for college and celebrate all paths to a fulfilling life.

Highly Effective Teachers and Leaders

We empower our best-in-class teachers and leaders to see each student as an individual, matching what sparks their curiosity with what and how we teach.

Build on Students' Strengths

We support our students to see those gifts, then build the skills and confidence they need to thrive. Every student walks through the doors of school bearing gifts. We help students foster the social and emotional skills essential for their success and well-being.

Safe, Structured, and Nurturing Environments

We provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment so that our students thrive and maximize their learning.

College, Career, and Beyond

Through KIPP Forward, we support alumni to discover what a fulfilling life means to them and break through any barrier that dares stand in their way of achieving it.

Community & Collective Power

We join together with families and communities, partnering to pursue the more just world we all want to see. Together, our students are lighting ever-wider paths to opportunity and change.
For themselves. For all those who will follow them. And for us all.

Our Vision

Every child grows up free to create the future they want for themselves and their communities.

Our Mission

Together with families and communities, we create joyful, academically excellent schools that prepare students with the skills and confidence to pursue the paths they choose -college, career, and beyond- so they can lead fulfilling lives and build a more just world.
