KIPP DC Overview
By 2025, KIPP DC will build upon two decades of proven results to develop into a more impactful, innovative, and inclusive school system, that provides joyful, identity-affirming learning experiences so that all students and alumni achieve extraordinary outcomes. We are a network of eighteen schools educating nearly 7,000 students and employing 1,200 teachers, leaders, and staff members dedicated to our mission.
The Capital Teaching Residency is a nationally recognized, highly selective teacher training program that provides a pathway for new teachers to develop into outstanding educators. The Capital Teaching Residency is a cornerstone program of KIPP DC. KIPP DC schools educate and support students in the District of Columbia who have historically had limited access to high quality educational options. Equipped with a KIPP DC education, our alumni are empowered to be successful in college, careers, and life. As a Capital Teaching Resident, you play an active role in our mission.
Capital Teaching Residency Overview:
The Capital Teaching Residency is a three year program. Residents spend the first year of this commitment—their residency year—training in a KIPP DC classroom with a lead teacher and completing relevant coursework. The majority of primary residents work in prekindergarten, kindergarten, and first grade, while a small number are assigned to second through fourth grade. Through our gradual release model, residents are set up for success by becoming an integral part of their school community and gaining more responsibility in their classroom over time. Residents have the opportunity to obtain their DC teacher licensure.
At the end of the residency year, residents who have completed all program requirements have the opportunity to interview for lead teacher positions at KIPP DC or one of our partner public charter schools in the District. These residents commit to two additional years of teaching beyond their residency year.
