Welcome to our Camden High School!

KIPP New Jersey’s high school programming is dedicated to fulfilling our promise to students to provide them with the tools and resources needed to live choice-filled lives. 

From day one, students are challenged inside and outside the classroom, from a large roster of Advanced Placement and honors classes, to varsity athletics and a variety of clubs for different student interests.

At KIPP High School, students will have access to: 

  • Advanced Placement Courses (or pre-AP for earlier grades) that will provide students with the opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school 
  • Access to rigorous summer pre-college programming opportunities 
  • Career and College counseling beginning their junior year 
  • High-quality, rigorous, and free ACT preparation beginning in ninth grade 
  • Sports, extra-curricular clubs and activities meant to help students find their passion and purpose

KIPP High School is our first high school in Camden. KIPP HS opened in fall 2020 with 9th grade eventually growing to educate students in grades 9-12. KIPP HS serves students from KIPP middle schools (Whittier, Lanning Square) when they step up from 8th grade along with some new-to-KIPP students from other Camden schools.

KIPP HS offers a progressive, college-and-career-ready educational experience, with a focus on developing 21st century leadership skills. AP course options will grow as the school grows, and students will have the opportunity to participate in clubs and sports at either KIPP HS or in conjunction with CCSD High Schools before the school is fully grown.
