Who We Are
KIPP Metro Atlanta Schools is part of the growing network of KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program) schools across the nation. KIPP is a network of free, open enrollment, college preparatory schools dedicated to preparing students in underserved communities for success in college and in life. There are 162 KIPP schools in 20 states and the District of Columbia serving more than 59,000 students. In Metro Atlanta, there are eight KIPP schools including three elementary schools, four middle schools, and one high school, as well as the KIPP Through College Program which supports students on their journeys “to and through” college. KIPP Metro Atlanta Schools plans to serve more students each year as it grows into a full K-12 network.
What We Do
We partner with local school districts in Metro Atlanta to increase the number of college graduates and to change the mindset of what is possible in public education by investing in the growth and development of students, teachers, and school leaders.
What is New
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) ensures that students continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. This summer, the United States Department of Agriculture plans to serve more than 200 million free meals to children 18 years and under at approved SFSP sites.
