What is KIPP?
KIPP, the Knowledge is Power Program, is a national network of free, open-enrollment, college preparatory public charter schools with a proven track record of preparing students in educationally underserved communities for success in college and in life.
We are motivating children to move forward with the power to lead successful lives of achievement today and in the future.
Our Mission & Vision
We envision that KIPP DFW will have a transformational impact on the city of Dallas-Fort Worth. It will prove what is possible to city leaders and education entities and set an example of excellence that can be emulated in other public school districts.
It is our goal that KIPP DFW students will serve as role models to their families and communities.
The Future of KIPP DFW
KIPP DFW currently serves 2,400 students from Kindergarten through 8th grade in six public charter schools across three campuses. We know we can help more children, so our goal is to expand to 10 schools with the capacity to serve 5,000 students in southern Dallas from Pre-K to 12th grade by 2025.
By creating high-quality, public charter schools in southern Dallas, we can prove that academic excellence is possible and prepare more students for success in college and careers.
