Ignite means to energize, mobilize, catalyze, and light up. It is a powerful verb that captures the energy needed to spark transformative change in our students’ lives and our community. It also illustrates how the potential of each student can be sparked when they are in a supportive and rigorous environment where their teachers believe in them.

At KIPP Ignite Academy, our students will discover their passions and find that learning is an enlightening and joyful experience through balanced literacy and STEAM-based (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) instruction. From kindergarten, teachers help ignite students’ inner fire, strength, and light by providing rigorous academics, as well as character instruction, so they can safely take risks and innovate for a better tomorrow. We believe that every student has unique gifts to share and, as educators, it is our job to spark their passions. KIPP Ignite students will leave fourth grade as creative risk-takers who tackle academic, as well as personal challenges, with grit and zest. They believe and know that they are the designers of their futures and advocate for themselves and others. They are hopeful, curious, persistent, and respectful, as they proudly climb the mountain to and through college.
