At KIPP Climb Academy we believe that students learn best when they know that their teachers and school leader care about them as individuals and have high expectations for both character and academics. We exemplify excellence through a rigorous academic program that is supported by teachers who are committed to constantly developing their craft. Climbers are met where they are and guided through individualized instruction so that both growth and criterion goals are met, year after year.

The culture of KIPP Climb Academy inspires each of us to recognize our strengths as we continue to strive for the excellence of our team. Our motto is: Work hard. Be nice. Be BRIGHT! We believe in creating a loving culture where the focus is on being consistent and calm, and building strong relationships. We believe that the micro-moments of our days shape the way we view the world and our place within it. Therefore, teachers strike the balance of warm and demanding in their interactions with students, and as a community we imbue the BRIGHT values in all of our interactions.

We know that we live in a changing world and are excited by the new development and advancements that our students will see in their lives. At KIPP Climb we believe in preparing our students for this future through a daily innovation class, or “iLab.” Here students learn the basics of coding and programming, in conjunction with team work and critical thinking skills, which will provide the foundation more advanced skill development in future years.
