KIPP Generations Academy (Grades 5-7) is the first KIPP SoCal school in Gardena, a tuition-free, college preparatory public middle school, currently serving grades 5-7*. At KIPP Generations, we honor our past, empower our present, and brighten our future. We amplify the strength of our students, families, and community through an education rooted in our identities and endless opportunities for all.

KIPP Generations Academy fosters a transformative educational environment where our students engage in rigorous academic instruction, collaborative character development and a diverse array of electives, activities and enrichments. From a robust Boys & Girls Club After School program, Academic and Family Founder Celebrations to Club Athletics, students will further develop their skills and pursue their passions.

*A grade level will be added each year until we are fully grown with TK-8th grade.
