Founded in 2003, the mission of KIPP Truth Academy (KTA) is to prepare scholars to enter, succeed in, and graduate from college preparatory high schools and colleges. Moreover, it is our aim that our scholars develop the academic and cultural tools to be productive contributors to their community; building on a legacy of achievement.
At KIPP Truth Academy, we internalize and communicate our values as actions to reflect our active role and responsibility in living the beliefs— as a means of achieving our mission and vision; and as a function of our membership in the KIPP Truth Academy school community.
KTA's core values:
Persevere: We believe that we must show courage in the face of hardship. We are united in the belief that through hard work, we will overcome adversity.
Achieve Excellence: We relentlessly pursue excellence in all that we do. We believe we have an obligation to seek knowledge as a means of improving ourselves and our community.
Lead & Serve: We believe leadership is not a right, but a privilege. We have the moral responsibility to work to improve our lives as a first step to improve the lives of others. We act honestly and in the pursuit of justice even when it requires us to take great risks.
Inquire: We believe that we must be seekers of knowledge. We do not accept information, but respectfully ask questions to bring light to our truths.
Appreciate: We believe that education is a privilege. In everything we do, we must show thanks for the sacrifices others have made for us.
Care: We believe that to love others we must first love ourselves. We believe that we must exercise compassion and care for those around us. In doing so, we seek nothing in return, but gain reward in togetherness.
