Adelante means "forward" in Spanish. KIPP Adelante is a living, breathing organism made up of students, parents, staff, alumni, and key stakeholders that are always moving forward.

The mission of KIPP Adelante Preparatory Academy is to ensure that our students develop the academic skills, intellectual habits, and character traits needed to succeed in top-quality high schools, colleges, and the competitive world beyond. The vision of KIPP Adelante is to ensure that all of our students are prepared to succeed in life through problem-solving, critical thinking, respect, self-advocacy, and grit.

All KIPPsters at Adelante receive 4 years of Orchestra and complete their physical education requirements in the world-renowned Balboa Park. We own and operate our own buses as well.
