KIPP Whittier Middle

This summer, KIPP Whittier Middle joined the tradition of excellence started by KIPP Lanning Square Primary and Middle as KIPP Cooper Norcross Academy’s newest middle school. Our teachers empower students to be learners and leaders with access to unlimited opportunities. Our students have the best academic instruction based on a 1 to 1 blended and collaborative learning model, a safe and supportive learning environment, caring teachers, extracurriculars and more! Recently, KIPP Whittier Middle moved into the historic J.G. Whittier School in Camden which recently underwent renovations to provide a state of the art and safe learning environment for our students. Click here for an update on renovations.

Individualized Learning

Using a 1-to-1 blended learning model, we will leverage and focus on small-group instruction, along with STEM classes designed to provide students with specialized hands-on activities that build them into analytical thinkers and problem solvers.

Expanding Our Horizons

Our students will get to explore the world around them through field trips and multiple activities after school. They will become tough competitors through our athletics program and develop their talents through exposure to the arts.


Every student will have his or her own laptop to use throughout the day! Teachers will prepare students for careers of the future by incorporating technology skills into their teaching and meeting the needs of individual learners through computer learning programs.

Community Engagement

Our school and students will be dedicated to giving back to the Camden community. They will participate in service learning experiences and extracurricular activities that stress helping others.
