At KIPP (Knowledge is Power Program) we promise every student the opportunity for a choice-filled life. With a focus on character and academics, our free public charter schools prepare students for success in college and opportunity in life
KIPP (Knowledge is Power Program) NYC is a network of 15 public charter schools in Brooklyn, Harlem and the Bronx. 99% of KIPP NYC students identify as African American, Hispanic or multi-racial and 88% are eligible for free or reduced lunch. With a mission to help students go to and through college, KIPP students matriculate to college at more than double the rate of low-income students nationally and complete college at 4x the rate of their peers.
New York charter schools receive about 80% of the per pupil funding that traditional public schools receive. Therefore, KIPP raises funds to meet this gap and ensure its schools are at funding parity with traditional public schools and can support supplementary KIPP Through College programming.
