KIPP Central City Academy is a college preparatory public middle school that will change the lives of its students and the city of New Orleans. We open our doors in the fall of 2007 , enrolling 90 fifth graders. Each year we will add a new class of fifth graders, eventually serving 360 students in fifth through eighth grade.
Located in the heart of New Orleans, students at KIPP Central City Academy will build the academic skills, personal values, and intellectual habits of mind to succeed in high school, college, and beyond. With integrity and pride, teachers and students will focus on results and develop personal and social responsibility to build a better New Orleans for themselves and us all.
Support - As a network of public charter schools, KIPP schools receive the majority of their funds from state and federal governments. However, KIPP offers much more than traditional schools, including an extended school day, week and year, field trips and extracurricular activities. To provide KIPP’s unique educational program, schools rely on support from community members, parents and local foundations.
