Work hard. Be nice.

Why Kipp?

We empower and invest in our staff to help them grow as professionals.


Continuous learning is one of KIPP’s core values. We believe there is always room for teachers to learn, grow, and improve at each stage of their careers. That’s why we prioritize and invest in unparalleled professional development for all of our staff, from ongoing coaching and school-wide trainings to national conferences and retreats.

Professional Development


We strive to make KIPP a rewarding place for teachers to work and are focused on keeping our teachers with us longer. When you’re healthy and happy, you can better support your students. In addition to offering higher salaries than our district counterpart, KIPP Jacksonville provides medical, dental, and vision insurance at no cost to employees. We support our employees’ physical, mental, and financial well-being through wellness initiatives and a 403(b) retirement plan with company match.



KIPP Jacksonville Schools is part of a national network with a 20-year track record of preparing students in underserved communities to and through college. We collaborate daily with our peers to meet students’ needs and support each other both in and out of school. Our staff, students, families, and community partners make up a Team and Family on a mission to prove the possible for our scholars.
