KIPP:MA is part of a non-profit national network of college-preparatory, public charter schools serving elementary, middle and high school students. We have a 20-year track record of preparing our students in educationally underserved communities for success in college and life.
Our schools are part of the free public school system and enrollment is open to all students. Our charter schools are given more academic and budgetary flexibility than traditional public schools, and in exchange commit to deliver high-quality academic results for students.
There are nearly 200 KIPP schools in 20 states and the District of Columbia serving nearly 70,000 students on their path to and through college. We believe that excellent academic, safe and structured schools, empowered teachers, an emphasis on character development and support through college are the foundation for student success, and we strive to provide this for every student.
KIPP:MA currently operates five schools in the Greater Boston area: KIPP Academy Lynn Middle School and KIPP Academy Lynn Collegiate High School; our new Kindergarten on Wheeler Street in Lynn and our KIPP Academy Boston Middle School grades 5-8 and KIPP Academy Boston Elementary School serving grades K-1. We serve over 1,400 students in grades K-12 and employ 222 staff members.
