About KIPP Scholar Academy

Scholarship. Love. Integrity. Grit.

At KIPP Scholar, we believe that every student deserves a high-quality, college preparatory education. Therefore, KIPP Scholar Academy will meet the individual needs of each scholar through a variety of creative instructional methods. Our scholars will be risk-takers who accept and triumph over academic challenges. As scholars, they will possess a love of learning. They will love themselves, their community, team, and family. With the value of grit, they will achieve their goals no matter how challenging they may be. By doing what’s right even when no one is looking, our students’ integrity will guide them in their decision-making.

The pursuit of musical excellence is pivotal to KIPP Scholar Academy. We believe that early musical training develops the brain, helps kids think creatively, and exposes them to and gives them a profound appreciation for the richness of diverse cultures. Our scholars will engage in music through the playing of an instrument and reading of music.

Our scholars bring with them an array of assets, experiences, and individually unique perspectives, and we will empower and nurture them to be the leaders who will impact, build, and transform their world.

Currently, fifty-two percent of KIPP Scholar students are African American, forty-five percent are Latino, one percent are Native American, and one percent are Asian/Pacific Islander.  Ninety-three percent of students qualify for the federal free and reduced lunch program.
