What is KIPP National?

Our diverse network of public schools, regions, and the KIPP Foundation are united around a shared commitment: a future without limits. We continually raise the bar for teaching and learning, ensuring success in one classroom travels across our network to hundreds more. Together, our students and alumni are lighting ever-wider paths to opportunity and change for themselves, for all those who will follow them, and for us all.

There are 255 KIPP schools in 20 states plus the District of Columbia serving over 100,000 students on their path to and through college. We believe that excellent academic, safe and structured schools, empowered teachers, an emphasis on character development and support through college are the foundation for student success, and we strive to provide this for every student.

All KIPP schools, whether they are in Massachusetts or in other states, are part of the free public school system in their respective states and enrollment is open to all students. KIPP public charter schools are given more academic and budgetary flexibility than traditional public schools, and in exchange commit to deliver high-quality academic results for students.
