Program Description

KIPP Endeavor Academy was founded in 2007 based on the belief that all students can and will learn when provided with a quality education. KIPP Endeavor Academy is located in the heart of the urban core of Kansas City, drawing students from the entire Kansas City Missouri School District. We are a free, open-enrollment charter school serving over 230 middle school students in grades 5-8.

Because we serve students who are historically educationally disadvantaged, their ultimate achievements will be all the more impressive. We believe that it is our mission to ensure that all of our students are given the tools necessary to be successful in high school, college, and in life.

Every day, KIPP Endeavor Academy students are proving what is possible for students in urban education in Kansas City.

KIPP Through College (KTC) is a part of the broader KIPP approach that helps to eliminate the opportunity gap between students from high- and low-income communities. KTC counselors and advisors in KIPP schools across the country do whatever it takes to support students as they navigate high school, prepare for college entry, and work hard on their journey through college. Local KTC programs are augmented by national initiatives and services that help to provide access to high school, college, and career preparation resources across the KIPP network.
