KIPP Upper Roseville Academy

Located in Newark’s North Ward, KIPP Upper Roseville Academy opened in 2019 with kindergarten students and will expand to serve students in grades K-4. At KIPP URA, teachers are given the support they need to help students achieve extraordinary success inside and outside the classroom. KIPP URA’s facilities offer students access to a vast collection of culturally diverse Fountas and Pinnell reading libraries in every classroom, blended learning spaces with computers and iPads to reinforce individual Math and Reading skills, indoor gymnasium to develop gross motor skills, state of the art auditorium to showcase student performances / productions and lastly, an on-site kitchen that prepares fresh, nutritious meals for all students.

Founded by a former KIPP SPARK Academy grade level chair, KIPP URA benefits from the best practices learned at the four KIPP New Jersey schools before it. Parents have teachers’ cell phone numbers to ask questions, attend Saturday schools, and participate in family focused events throughout the year.


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.


Students learn to use their voice and stand up for what’s right. In performing arts class students develop speaking skills and presence, in academic classes students debate with their peers, and at all times scholars take pride in the success of their school.


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.
