KIPP: Jacksonville Schools

The Knowledge is Power Program

KIPP is a non-profit network of college-preparatory, public charter schools educating elementary, middle, and high school students. KIPP schools are part of the free public school system and enrollment is open to all students. There are 200 KIPP schools in 20 states and the District of Columbia educating nearly 80,000 students on their path to and through college, careers, and life. KIPP believes that great teachers and school leaders, a supportive learning environment, and an emphasis on both academics and character are the foundation for student success. KIPP students complete college at a rate that is above the national average for all students and four times higher than that of students from similar economic backgrounds.

KIPP currently has three schools in Jacksonville:

KIPP Impact Middle School (grades 6-8) – opened in 2010
KIPP VOICE Elementary School (grades K-4) – opened in 2012
KIPP Jacksonville Elementary (grades K-1) – opened in 2015

In fall 2017, KIPP VOICE 4th graders will begin feeding into KIPP Impact Middle School as 5th graders. KIPP Jacksonville Elementary will add a grade level each year until it reaches full capacity.
