We prepare students with the knowledge, skills, habits, and character for success in college and life. Integral to the school’s program are its core values: cultural awareness, curiosity, and citizenship. KIPP Jacksonville Elementary is the newest KIPP Jacksonville School. Since opening in 2015, the school has grown to serve grades K-3. KIPP Jacksonville Elementary will continue to add one grade level each year.
