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 141 KIPP schools in 20 states and the District of Columbia serving more than 50,000 students. In Metro Atlanta, there are currently seven KIPP schools including four middle schools, one high school, and two elementary schools as well as the KIPP Through College Program which supports students on their journey “to and through” college. KIPP Metro Atlanta 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. We currently operate seven schools in Metro Atlanta with plans to ultimately operate eight schools serving approximately 3,300 students.
