Program Description

n the last seven years, we've embarked on a major expansion to create a powerful kindergarten-through-college continuum of services. In 2009, we opened the KIPP NYC College Prep High School to serve the students who graduate from our middle schools and to ensure they attain the highest levels of college readiness. Each of our five middle schools have an elementary program, bringing KIPP inspiration, dedication, and preparation to our students' first years in school.
