Regional Organization: KIPP St. Louis

KIPP Inspire Academy (KIA) has a strong track record of accelerating the learning of all students – students who enter fifth grade far behind their grade level academically. Because of the strong no excuses culture at KIPP, these academic delays are not seen as impediments to learning, but rather motivation for our teachers.

The mission of KIPP Inspire Academy is to inspire all students to develop the character and academic skills necessary to succeed in high school and college so that they can build a better tomorrow for themselves and us all.
