KIPP Austin Public Schools is a network of free, public, open enrollment schools for low‐income and historically educationally underserved students in East Austin, Texas. Since 2002, KIPP Austin Public Schools has empowered students to strengthen the academic skills, intellectual habits, and character traits necessary to thrive in, and go to and through college, giving them the freedom to shape their futures and positively affect their communities. The students we serve are typically the first in their families to attend college.
At KIPP Austin Public Schools, we believe that demographics do not define
destiny. We believe that every child, regardless of background, has a right to an
exemplary education. We are committed to empowering our students to thrive
in and graduate from college, choose their paths, and impact their communities.
Over the past 14 years we have grown tremendously. We have developed a 2020 Plan, which is our roadmap to ensuring that by year 2020, KIPP Austin students will
graduate or be on track to graduate from college at five times the national rate
for students from low-income communities. It is our roadmap to ensuring every
one of our team & family is working together to support our students and their
families as we pursue our mission and the ultimate goal of having all our
students living lives full of opportunity and choice.
As one team & family, we can and will fulfill our promise.
