The mission of KIPP Destiny Elementary School is to grow scholar-leaders who are empowered to define their own destiny and positively impact the world through leadership development and superior academic preparation. KIPP Destiny Elementary students will thrive on challenging, engaging academic and service learning experiences that enable them to use their talents to transform their communities and the world. KIPP Destiny scholar leaders will model risk-taking and persistence as they chart their course to and through college.  

Through acts of service, KIPP Destiny scholar leaders will also develop agency – the capacity to act independently and make free choices. The academic and service learning experiences at KIPP Destiny will empower students to become change agents who will develop the habits of mind that foster zest for learning and grit, enabling them to persevere as they chart the course to realizing their highest potential as scholars, leaders, and people. Our students will become scholar-leaders who positively impact the world through KIPP Destiny's core values: Inquire; Make it Better; Persist toward Excellence; Appreciate; Care; and Take a Risk.
