For Families (Enroll)

Collaboration with families is essential to our students' success – it’s woven into the DNA of everything we do. Through phone calls, emails, home visits, and parent-teacher conferences, KIPP schools regularly communicate with parents about their child's academic development. Families are asked regularly to review student work and progress. 

At KIPP schools:

  • Parents are encouraged to be involved and to contribute;
  • Teachers have the freedom to innovate and never give up on a child;
  • Students work hard and come to school ready to learn.

We help students learn by:

  • Creating a safe and structured learning environment;
  • Setting clear expectations by requiring that parents, teachers, and students all sign a Commitment to Excellence form;
  • Extending the school day, week and year;
  • Offering extracurricular activities;
  • Organizing exciting end-of-year learning trips;
  • Having teachers available by cell phone after school for homework help;
  • Holding students accountable for behavior as well as academic success.

About our enrollment:

KIPP schools are tuition-free, open-enrollment public schools. Students are accepted regardless of background or academic record on a first-come, first-served basis. If more students apply than spaces are available, students are admitted by lottery.

 

To enroll your child in a KIPP school, please contact the school in your community directly by phone or email. For a list of KIPP schools with contact details and the grades served by each school, go to the KIPP School Directory.
