KIPP Truth Academy empowers students to share power with others and bring change to the world. We advocate for the needs of others, identify problems in existing systems and take initiative in creating solutions. We raise our voices to positively influence others to change their mindsets and actions.


We create safe spaces for scholars and adults to be their authentic selves. We cultivate learning outside the classroom through a rich variety of extracurriculars like art and dance. We seek to know our scholars individually, culturally and developmentally so that we are responsive to their academic and social emotional needs.


Our journey together starts with a visit to each family’s home before orientation, and continues through elementary school, middle school, and high school. Every student that finishes middle school with us gets an alumni advisor and a KIPP Through College team to support their progress to and through college or their chosen career path.


Though we focus on character, our students also receive an education that prepares them for college and beyond. With 77% of our 8th graders matriculating to college, we have created support structures to make sure they get the rest of the way through.
