KIPP DC Promise Academy opened in July 2009 at the Benning Road Campus in Ward 7. Promise Academy is KIPP DC’s first elementary school and is a free, open-enrollment, public charter school. The school serves grades 1-4.
The mission of Promise Academy is to prepare our students for their journey to college by providing them with the tools to become critical thinkers who are curious about the world around them and confident in their ability to shape it.
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.
