In 2009, KIPP St. Louis opened its first school, KIPP Inspire Academy (KIA), with the support of Washington University in St. Louis. Today, KIA has grown from a single class of 80 fifth graders to 320 students in grades five through eight.
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.
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.
