KIPP is Community

KIPP SoCal works to meet the needs of our communities through educational, action-oriented and health & wellness community based programs. We partner with families and local organizations in our communities to support healthy development for our KIPPsters and advocate for community-centric issues important to our student and broader community. Explore and partner with us today.

Looking Forward

Over the past decade, we have built 13 brand new, safe, nurturing campuses for our KIPPsters, with commitments to build permanent homes for each of our schools. From finding the location, to conducting due diligence and studies, securing entitlements and permits, all the way through to construction & inspections—honoring our commitment to our KIPPsters is always a timely, community-driven and rewarding process!
