Mission Statement

KIPP Los Angeles College Preparatory School is committed to preparing students with the academic skills, intellectual habits, and character traits that are necessary for success in high school, college, and the competitive world beyond.

Description

KIPP Los Angeles College Preparatory School (KIPP LA Prep) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, free (for students), public charter middle school that opened in the summer of 2003 in the underserved community of Lincoln Heights in northeast Los Angeles. We belong to a national network (www.kipp.org) of over 50 schools in 16 states and the District of Columbia. We serve 330 5th-8th grade students.

KIPP, which stands for "Knowledge Is Power Program," is a model for extraordinary public, upper-school elementary and middle schools that have shown remarkable success across the country. The KIPP philosophy encourages its students and their families to embrace an intense academic commitment as the key to students' future success.
