KIPP Forward

Every child deserves to create the future they want for themselves and their communities. KIPP Forward was created to ensure all 㽶Ƶ alumni have the tools, support, and confidence needed to pursue the paths they choose – college, career, and beyond. Together with families & communities, we create academically excellent schools to prepare students to lead fulfilling lives and build a more just world.

How KIPP Forward Works

The KIPP Forward team begins working with 㽶Ƶ students in middle school to help them prepare for the transition to 㽶Ƶ College Preparatory, 㽶Ƶ Legacy College Preparatory, and other high-performing high schools. Throughout high school, KIPP Forward remains connected with our alumni to offer academic, college placement, & career readiness programming. Once our alumni graduate from high school, KIPP Forward continues to support and collaborate with them on their path toward college completion or self-sustaining careers.

"It's not about going to a prestigious institution, or about going somewhere that feels comfortable to you; but more so about joining a community that you can positively influence and contribute to. That's where you should choose."

Christian Sturdivant, 㽶Ƶ College Preparatory '17
