KIPP Academy of Innovation
KIPP Academy of Innovation is a tuition-free, college-preparatory public charter middle school and is part of the national KIPP network of 270 schools in 20 states and Washington, DC.
Our interdisciplinary Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) curriculum integrates applied learning experiences into instruction to provide hands-on, student centered learning. It relies heavily on innovative technology to support student learning, facilitate collaboration, and increase access to resources beyond the classroom.
School Core Values
"I think it’s really cool that we are exposing kids to the potential possibilities of careers in STEAM. Here at our school, every student has an opportunity to see if it’s something they want to pursue in the future because they all take engineering, computer science, and robotics courses.”
