KIPP DC is a non-profit network of high-performing, college-preparatory public charter schools in Washington, D.C. All KIPP DC schools are tuition-free, open enrollment schools, and actively recruit and educate students in the city’s most educationally underserved communities. At KIPP DC, we strive to empower students and increase their access to opportunities. Highly effective teachers and leaders, more time in school, a rigorous college preparatory-curriculum, and a strong culture of high-expectations and support help our students make significant academic gains and continue to excel in high school, college, and whatever life path they choose.
In addition to operating high-performing schools, KIPP DC is supported by two critical programs central to the goal of helping underserved students get to and through college: KIPP Through College and the Capital Teaching Residency. KIPP Through College supports KIPP DC alumni on their journey to a college degree – helping them navigate the application process, access financial aid, connect to summer internships, and build the advocacy and decision-making skills needed to persist and graduate. The Capital Teaching Residency is an award winning teacher-training program designed to increase the pipeline of highly-effective educators in the District of Columbia. These programs, coupled with exceptional PreK3 through 12 schools, make KIPP DC one of the highest-performing public school networks in the District of Columbia and a national model of excellence in urban education.
The KIPP DC network currently serves over 5,700 students at 16 schools on six campuses in the District of Columbia.
