The program nurtures well-rounded critical thinkers who love learning, and at the same time enables them to master the California content standards. Our students are not only excellent academic achievers in reading and mathematics; they are artists, scientists, authors, athletes, and agents of change.
The mission of KIPP Raíces Academy is to teach the knowledge and skills, nurture the confidence and character, and inspire the passion needed for students to achieve their goals, excel in the competitive world, and positively impact the community through excellence in thought and action. Our guiding values are love, honor, integrity, and excellence.
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.
