KIPP Colorado's mission is to equip our students with the academic skills and character traits necessary to succeed in college and the competitive world beyond. KIPP Colorado, like all KIPP regions, is locally governed and led and has a well-earned reputation for closing the achievement gap for underserved students in Denver. Our longer school days and school year give our students more time on task to successfully climb the mountain to and through college, while developing character strengths, extracurricular interests and individual talents along the way. Since opening with our first fifth grade class in 2002, KIPP Colorado has grown to serve over 1,000 students at three schools in Denver's most underserved neighborhoods.
