KIPP Austin College Prep is a school that firmly believes that in order for a student to thrive in college, they need to have strong character, strong intellectual habits, and strong academics. We are a school that knows that if we only focus on academics our students will not be as successful as they can be. In order to develop all three strands of our mission, our students engage in rigorous courses; explicitly learn intellectual habits such as study skills, independent reading, and note-taking; and participate in service projects at our school, at other KIPP Austin schools, and in the Austin community. Finally, we explicitly teach character and provide opportunities for our students to demonstrate KIPP Austin's values of courage, tenacity, quality, honor, and community.
