About KIPP Corazón Academy

KIPP Corazón opened its doors in South Gate for the first time on August 14, 2017.

At KIPP Corazón Academy, we are a community built on revolutionary love. We impact our community by driving excellence and demanding equity so future generations will thrive. We enhance our unique heritage and stand on the shoulders of our ancestors to lead with pride and purpose. We are a restorative community built by students, teachers, and family members, whose individual voices are powerful and even greater collectively. We create solutions to fight for a just local and global community. Through rigorous academic instruction, balanced character education, strong relationships, and rich learning experiences, our students will be successful today and in high school, college, and life. We are 21st century leaders who act with a critical consciousness to build a better tomorrow for ourselves, our communities, and our world.

Revolutionary love runs through every aspect of the school. KIPP Corazón’s values are tied to this guiding principle and connect with our students so that they “have the courage to take risks, the ganas to set challenging goals and work hard to meet them, the honor to love and respect themselves and their community, and the hope to know that they have the power to find a better way.”
