In August 2008, KIPP San Jose Collegiate opened its doors to students from East San Jose who are committed to working hard to prepare for college and success in life. The school was founded by Melissa Gonzales, who was herself a founding teacher at KIPP Heartwood Academy in 2004.
KIPP San Jose Collegiate will provide a rigorous, academic program to prepare students to enter and succeed in the nation’s finest four-year colleges and universities and the competitive world beyond. By building poised, confident, and articulate leaders, our graduates will use their education and life experiences to make positive change in their own lives, within the East San Jose community, and among our global society.
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.
