K-12 EducationStudents and families across the country were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Now that we are back in school, we are creating a learning environment with a culture of wellness, belonging, and support, in which all children can grow — both academically and socially, while also ensuring that we are meeting the individual needs of every student. Each school added social-emotional learning time and academic remediation while making learning fun as we bridge the gap between where our students are and where they need to be.

KIPP ForwardThrough KIPP Forward (formerly KIPP Through College), we’re supporting students to choose and prepare for the educational and career path that fits their goals and sense of purpose. Once on their way, KIPP Forward teams help alumni keep moving forward while pursuing their dreams. To support increased needs due to COVID, KIPP is providing persistence and emergency funding, mental health counseling and tools to get students re-enrolled if they were forced to take time away from college. Additionally, KIPP is providing counseling and resources from alumni pursuing certification and credentialing programs and other pathways towards career.
