KIPP School Summit 2019

With a program crafted by KIPP alumni, staff, and advisors, we’re going back to where it all began. Join us in Houston, TX for three inspiring days surrounded by 6,000 teachers, staffers, leaders, partners, and alumni as we prepare for the 2019–20 school year. KSS 2019, also KIPP’s 25th anniversary, will be an opportunity for ALL to celebrate, learn, and grow together. KSS 2019 will be grounded entirely in the leadership and experiences of alumni.

More Than Ever 2017: A Message to the KIPP Team and Family

KIPP students and alumni wrote and narrated a powerful video, which the entire KIPP Team and Family watched together at KSS. They share their fears, hopes for a brighter tomorrow, and why they’re committed to making the world a better place and effecting generational change, now more than ever.

Highlights from College Partners Convening 2017

We brought the higher education community together at KIPP School Summit. More than 100 thought leaders from colleges, organizations, and KIPP Through College programs across the US met to tackle the unique challenges facing first-generation college goers. United by the same goal of increasing college completion rates, the group came together to identify practices and policies aimed at addressing these challenges and spurring change.
