About Our Schools

To and Through College & Career

No matter how well students read, understand math, or stay on task when they are with us, we support them to and through college. Soon our alumni graduating college will double the graduation rate in Newark. See more about our results here.

Reaching All Students In Newark

KIPP New Jersey Public Schools are free and serve all students regardless of special needs, past attendance, grades, or any other factor. There is no test to get in.


Our schools offer rich extracurricular programs. From athletics teams and dance classes, to photography or robotics club, our students are encouraged to discover their passions, connect to their communities and become lifelong learners.

Fun And Whole-Student Learning

Sometimes the best learning comes from the social skills gained by interacting with the people around you. Longer school days mean more opportunities for culture and activities such as sports, reading, technology, after school clubs and more.

The KIPP Connection

We are part of KIPP, which has been around since 1994 and is the largest group of charter schools in the country. What that means is we get to share best practices to learn from each other and our long history. Each school we open makes us better equipped to meet the needs of all children.

Wraparound Services

Our schools partner with community organizations to offer comprehensive wraparound services for students and families including mental and social emotional support services, after school programming, grocery distribution, family engagement events and more.

Over the summer our schools host events to welcome students to our KIPP Newark family. Your child’s school will contact you directly with more information about event dates.
