KIPP Newark Middle School Transitions

We are thrilled that your child is about to take the next big step in their educational journey, heading to middle school! We have five KIPP Newark middle schools – KIPP TEAM Academy, KIPP Rise Academy, KIPP BOLD Academy, KIPP Purpose Academy, and KIPP Justice Academy. All of our middle schools are proud to offer rigorous academic and a variety of extracurricular activities. We can’t wait for you to meet the team at your child’s new school!


What do I need to do to claim their seat?

You need to attend the Welcome Event and complete your child’s re-registration beginning March 1st.

What if I would like my child to attend a different KIPP Newark middle school campus than the one they were assigned?

Campus Transfer requests (placement appeals) will be considered under the following circumstances:

  • Transportation hardship (documentation required)
  • Safety transfer
  • Sibling or family member living in the same household (documentation required)

Due to space constraints, requests submitted for any other reason may not be approved.

If you would like to submit a campus transfer request, please speak directly to your child’s assigned Middle School for more details.
