KIPP King Collegiate High School opened in the fall of 2007 as the first KIPP high school on the west coast with the aim of establishing the gold standard for providing a superior, college preparatory, public high school education in a low-income community. Every student at KIPP King takes AP courses. Throughout the course of high school, all students meet the California A-G requirements and thus qualify to apply to UC schools. Upon graduation, all students will have the wisdom, habits of mind, and commitment of heart to be change agents in the communities they serve.
The mission of KIPP King Collegiate is to prepare students to live inspired and ethical lives by developing within them extraordinary academic skills, a life-long passion for learning, and the resolve to change their own lives and the world around them through acts of excellence, justice, humanity, and courage.
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.
