KIPP, the Knowledge Is Power Program, is on a mission to develop in underserved students the academic skills, intellectual habits, and qualities of character necessary to succeed at all levels of pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, college, and the competitive world beyond. Now entering its second decade, KIPP has become a national leader in the movement to provide all children with access to an excellent education. KIPP was founded in Houston, and 20 of KIPP’s more than 109 schools are here, modeled after what we started in 1994. While just 40% of low-income students across the nation matriculate to college, KIPPsters boast a 90% college matriculation rate.
