Who Needs to Apply for 2022-2023 School Year?
- If you have students at home who will be in grades TK-8 for next year, not currently enrolled in a KIPP School, and want them to attend KIPP, you need to submit an application for these students.
- Siblings of current students will be given priority (or an increased chance of acceptance) only if they apply prior to February 11th!
- Additionally, if your student is currently a 4th grader and will be transitioning to a new KIPP middle school next year, you will need to reapply in order to secure a seat for 5th grade!
- To be eligible for Kindergarten, students must turn 5 on or before September 1st of the year that they are enrolling. For TK (Transitional Kindergarten), students must turn 5 on or between September 2nd and February 2nd of the year that they are enrolling.
Current students who are advancing to the next grade within the same school do not need to re-apply.
